Developing the Clinical Mentor Role Through e-Learning Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • La Trobe University/Austin Health Clinical School of Nursing's final-year undergraduate students undertake an integrated clinical-theoretical experience during which the clinical practicum is facilitated by registered nurses in a mentor model of education. The success of this model is contingent on the educational preparation of the registered nurse for the role of mentor. This article describes the development of a more flexible Web-based preparation program for registered nurses to assist them to fully adopt the role of mentor.
