All student nurse clinical placements and educational experiences are supported by a live mentor or practice teacher, who meet the requirements set by the NMC in Standards to support learning and assessment in practice Preparation for mentors, practice teachers and teachers' (NMC2008)
Annual mentor updates are a mandatory trust requirement and triennial review is undertaken by our mentors and practice teachers.
We have a NELFT mentor database which is updated by the placement facilitators to ensure allocation of live mentors and practice teachers is possible.
