Mentor's Handbook

The Mentor's Handbook is produced for all placement areas. The aim is to provide clear information to enable mentors in practice to support student nurses in your placements.

In this fifth edition information has been arranged in sections to enable you to find what you need easily. The web content will be updated whenever revisions or new information becomes available.

University of Nottingham placement areas should all have a hard copy of the mentor handbook. It's an A4 blue ring-binder with a pink spine. If you cannot locate yours please email who will arrange to have one sent to the placement area. To download and print the handbook takes 55 pages - please ask us for the printed copies we already have available.
