Assessment and Accountability in Mentorship Introduction A mentor is according to the Nursing and Midwifery Council a Nurse or Midwife that is responsible and accountable for facilitating learning, assessing performance and producing evidence of achievement or non- achievement of students in practice (NMC 2006). As the main aim in its Code (NMC 2008) is to protect the health of the public and the delivery of high quality care the mentors are established as “gate-keepers” to the professional register. To be able to carry out this task, the NMC further indentifies eight key skills in its' Standards that a nurse needs to develop in order to become a mentor and support learning and assessment in practice. This assignment aims to explain the terms of assessment and accountability as applicable to a Nurse mentor on the example of two first year adult branch nursing students in a Dermatology department.

According to White, K. R. (2014) “Nurse were the original servant leaders—at the patient’s beside and in communities- and now they are perfectly positioned to take their experience with leadership to a heightened level.
I have tried to incorporate the model in the essay to facilitate critical thinking and relating theory to practice in the essay. This essay also aims to include a discussion about the knowledge underpinning practice and the evidence base for the requirements of an important clinical skill for the students of nursing. I will also provide a conclusion to the essay which will discuss my reflection skills, acknowledge my insight and competencies gained during the clinical practicum and show my personal and professional development.

Searching in different schools, I found that this program has a bunch of resources not only solid basics of nursing theory , but also nursing practice as well as clinical experience that will give me the opportunity of been successful in different practice situations.

Furthermore, I think Nursing at Ryerson would make me not only a student with excellent communication skills, but also more compassionate, knowledgeable and a health care professional capable to lead and influence the health care field. I am very impressed with all the tools and resource the university has to offer the students experience clinical scenarios and situations as well as the facility of learn and practice nursing skills in an environment almost the same as the real hospital life. Study in one of the leaders in nursing education as is Ryerson University would give me the best education and formation to be a successful professional.
Introduction 1.0 Introduction In this assignment the authors will apply management theory to a real world situation. A definition of an effective leader will be offered.

The field is competitive and need to stay up to date. I’ve come to value the importance of having mentors. I have had great mentors that have given both positive and negative feedback. I’ve worked at the bedside so long hat I have this feeling of what the nurse goes through and I understand it from her perspective as well as administrative perspective. The best way to lead is to show, so being able to relate to the staff.
