Aiming to address the clinical mentor’s lack in nursing education and develop the clinical mentor’s competence with mentor education for national and international nursing students, the project will provide high quality structure of clinical mentoring practice and empower nurses serving as careers and educators for student nurses. This course will empower clinical mentors with high-quality skills and competences needed to perform their role and at the same time fill the gap, as there is no systematic approach in developing and implementing the quality courses offering mentors’ competences to the nurses in clinical environment in EU.

Partners of the project are: College of Nursing in Celje (coordinator); University of Oulu; Lithuanian University of Health Sciences; University of Alicante; and the European Federation of Nurses Associations (EFN).

The EU funded project Quality Mentorship for Developing Competent Nursing Students (QualMent) was launched with the kick-off meeting on 27-28 November 2018, in Slovenia (Celje). This first transnational meeting was a good opportunity for all the partners to discuss the first steps and the future objectives of this 28 months project.
