In 2003, research for the Nursing and Midwifery Council revealed that nurses often found it hard to fail the students they were mentoring – even when they had serious concerns about their competencies. Is this still the case? Nursing Times wants your views
The NMC responded in 2008 with new guidance to help strengthen the role and support of nurse mentors and improve the training of students.
If you have worked as a nurse mentor, please take part in our anonymous survey to find out whether things have changed for the better. It should take no longer than five minutes to complete.
The findings will be reported soon, in depth, in a forthcoming issue of Nursing Times.
If you would like to talk to us about the survey or the issue, please feel free to contact Sally Gainsbury on 020 7728 3758, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
