All nurses have a duty, via their professional code of conduct, to pass on their knowledge and this book is the ideal companion text for all new and trainee nurse mentors. This book provides a unique guide to strategies and ideas to help devise and enhance learning opportunities for their students. With a practical and accessible style, the book answers all those questions that mentors may have about the mentoring role, including: How can I create a good learning environment? How should I assess students in practice? How do I support failing students? What should I include in my mentors portfolio? The book includes cases, quotes from practitioners, strategies, tools and interventions that you can use in clinical practice. The Nurse Mentor's Handbook is centred around the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) mentor standards, and is easy to relate to nurse mentor courses and the requirements for effective updating.West, S., Clark, T., Jasper, M.
