Mentors Our nursing mentors play a vital role in our students' development

Our Adult Nursing and Mental Health Nursing degrees are based upon the NMC Standards for pre-registration nurse education (2010). You can review these standards in full. Our BSc (Hons) Nursing course received a series of commendations for the innovative interpretation and application of the new standards at the University of Derby.

As part of the preparation for existing mentors and other colleagues supporting students and to gain familiarity with the new programme, please see our Mentor guidance pages.

If you have any specific queries related to an individual student you should in the first instance contact the identified Link Lecturer for the area. If you have any course queries please contact the following team members.

Speak Out Safely

Our Nursing & Health Care School supports the Nursing Times Speak Out Safely campaign.

We want every member of our staff and students to feel able to raise concerns about wrongdoing or poor practice when they see it, and feel confident that their concerns will be addressed in a constructive way.

We promise that where staff or students identify a genuine patient safety concern, we will support them, help them to ensure their concern is fully investigated and, if appropriate, act on their concern. We will also give them feedback about how service providers have responded to the issue they have raised, as soon as possible.

Whether you are a staff member, or a student, please speak up when you feel something is wrong. We want you to be able to Speak Out Safely.
