Supporting students poses a significant challenge for nurse mentors and other healthcare professionals in today's world of practice. Recent concerns over the fitness to practice of nursing students at the point of registration and the move to all-graduate pre-registration programmes require new approaches to practice learning and mentoring the nurse of the future. Organised around the NMC mentoring domains and the Knowledge and Skills Framework, the second edition of this book offers clear practical advice on how to acquire and develop mentorship skills to support degree-level nursing students. It has been updated to include more detailed advice on what to do when a student is failing, how to approach assessment and provides more examples of mentoring in community placements. A companion website has been developed for the book containing extra activities and case studies, links to relevant documents and an annotated guide to interesting web resources on mentoring.
