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

Published: 05/02/2016
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.

Some of our publications are also available in hard copy, but this may entail a small charge. For more information and to order a hard copy please call 0345 772 6100 and select option five.

You can download all electronic publications from the RCN free of charge.
