Meeting in Alicante, Spain, for their 3rd Transnational meeting, partners had the opportunity to be briefed and to discuss the ongoing work and the latest developments of the project, ensuring that future steps are taken forward in a coordinated way. Partners also discussed the future engagement of clinical mentors in the co-design of the project´s clinical mentor course, to ensure that it is fit-for-purpose.

The latest project’s developments are relating to the three-course modules:

-Module I – which is an introduction to mentorship in nursing.

-Module II – which deepens into cultural and linguistic diversity in mentoring of nursing students.

-Module III – which reflects in the mentoring competency in assessment, and reflective discussion.

One of the key training materials of Module I is the EFN’s Competency Framework. This document relates to the Directive on Mutual Recognition of Professional Qualifications (2005/36/EC, amended in the Directive 2013/55/EU), which includes a set of 8 competences establishing the minimum educational requirements for nurses responsible of general care.

The next meeting (4th Transnational meeting) will take place in Kaunas (Lithuania), on 8-9 June 2020.​
