Working with your mentor What do you think your mentor will expect from you? What do you expect from your mentor? Extra support – do you know how to contact the PLF for your area?
How to make a good first impression on your mentor student nurse Ian Walker tips (2012): Be Punctual. - allow yourself time to arrive and get changed and store your bag and still be a bit early! Why does this matter Ask questions. : if you don’t know something ask and don’t pretend to know something if you don’t. Be pro active. – every day ask what is expected of you and offer your skills – don’t wait to be asked Show interest. “there is nothing worse than a student that looks bored while on placement”. Find out all about your placement before you go – and keep reading up! Say thankyou. ”Remember, your mentor is only human, she/he was in your shoes once”. Get to know your patients. - why is this important?
