    RCN Mentorship Project 2015. From Today’s Support in Practice to Tomorrow’s Vision for Excellence

    Publication Code : 005454

    The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) is aware of, and shares, the concerns identified around the facilitation of pre-registration education in practice. We believe 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, along with its membership, 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.
