Can you advise this nurse?
“I’m not actually a student nurse, I’ve been qualified just over a year and am about to start my mentoring qualification.
“Like most students I had ‘good’ and ‘bad’ mentors when I was training and I’m determined to make sure I fall into the ‘good’ category!
“So I wondered if you could tell me what you find helpful or supportive in a mentor? What sorts of things make placements easier and what makes them harder? Did a mentor do something specific that you found helpful?
“Any guidance on what makes a good mentor would be gratefully received! Thanks!”
