The purpose of this site is to provide a range of resources for mentors, co-mentors and supervisors to support them in their role of facilitating Nursing and Midwifery students’ learning and assessment in practice.
Students on Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) approved pre-registration nursing education programmes must be supported and assessed by mentors. This 76-page document, published in 2010, gives access to the NMC standards for mentors, practice teachers and teachers.
This toolkit, published by the Royal College of Nursing is designed for a mentor new to the role but can also act as a useful prompt and update for more experienced mentors. It looks at the role of the mentor and the support available for mentors, and provides guidance, including a placement checklist, on how to help students get the most out of their placements.
The skills, education and training of a mentor are important in ensuring that the practice placement of our nursing students supports high quality learning. The RCN has researched and debated what constitutes good mentorship. This report brings together output from this work and is designed to provide all stakeholders with an insight into how mentorship is valued, and demonstrate the need for further investment in this important role.
Raising Concerns provides guidance for nurses and midwives on raising concerns, setting out broad principles that will help them think through the issues and take appropriate action in the public interest. This new edition includes information on recent legislation that offers protection to whistleblowers as well as updated information on organisations nurses and midwives can go to for further advice.
