QualMent project starts!

Posted on November 30, 2018

The EU funded project Quality mentorship for developing competent nursing students (QualMent) has been launched with the kick-off meeting that took place this week in Slovenia (Celje).

The project aims 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.

By well-planned mentors’ education, 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 EFN will be the leading partner in all dissemination activities and will have the most important role in securing the sustainability of the project outputs.
