...This will be a useful tool for all nurses aiming to be mentors to student nurses. It is a comprehensive toolkit and contains an enormous amount of useful information and ideas for people looking to develop that role. It is a book I will be using within my role and one I will encourage other mentors in Forest Care to also use. -- Nigel Jopson, Operations Manager, Forest Care Ltd, Aldershot ` The book is an easy reference book and suitable for pre-registered nurse mentors or those becoming a mentor. It is simple to follow and covers the basics of good mentoring skills. The activities and case studies provoke thoughts and reflections. The book lacks in depth detail and explanations and so may be less useful to more experienced mentors `. -- Linda Chapman This useful and contemporary book will support mentors in their day-to-day work. -- Anneyce Knight, Senior Lecturer, Southampton Solent University Essential reading for all aspiring and new mentors. This book is easy to read and applies the NMC standards, the six C's and the Essential Skills Clusters to mentoring. -- Nikki Welyczko, Senior Lecturer, De Montfort University
