Sign off mentor criteria

This programme is no longer running. For general information on mentoring, please visit our Mentors page.

The NMC require all student nurses to be supervised and assessed by a sign off mentor, who is suitably qualified, on their final management placement.

All sign off mentors must have completed further preparation for this role and have been assessed, by a current sign off mentor, undertaking three assessments with a management nursing student. Two of these assessments can be simulation. The final assessment must be with a 3rd year management nursing student.
