This book is an essential guide to mentorship in health and social care. The chapters focus specifically on the eight Nursing and Midwifery Council domains for the preparation and training of mentors. A rich range of real-life case studies are included in every chapter, to demonstrate the challenges and dilemmas of mentoring in practice. The chapters cover a range of settings, including community nursing, school nursing, acute care, social work and biomedical science.

Learning objectives, chapter summaries and reflective questions are also included to help readers reappraise what they have learned.

Mastering Mentorship will be essential reading for both those preparing to become nurse mentors at post-registration level and those already qualified to mentor.
