Covers the NMC domains, is clear easy to read and provides examples from practice. I am assuming that the authors are considering a revision in view of revalidation and proposed changes to the SLAiP in the near future.

Successful mentoring of nursing/Healthcare students has significant challenge for mentors. Concerns over the fitness to practise of healthcare students require new approaches for placement learning and mentoring.
This book considers the relationship between mentorship theory, policy and practice.

A well written text for the student who will become a mentor when in clinical service. This also provides a useful resource for mentors already in clinical service and for University based tutors when dealing with novel experiences with students in practice placements.
