Mentor guidance

We've put together some guidance notes which we hope you'll find useful

We've put together some guidance notes which we hope you'll find useful. They include answers to frequently asked questions such as "What happens if my student is off sick?"

And there's lots of useful information on topics such as the assessment process and audit cycles. Plus we've included a full glossary of terms you might come across during your role as a mentor.

Of course, if you have any queries which aren't answered in our guidance documents, you can always contact your placement link at the university for your area.‌

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.
