Abstract

This article discusses the need for nurse mentors to receive adequate support to ensure that their experience, and the students, is a positive one. The authors explore how the development of the advanced training practice (ATP) scheme in general practice (GP) has helped general practice nurse mentors to meet the demand for more student placements and provide the best learning experience possible for students. The article features a framework that can be used in other ATP schemes to support mentors in GP ‘hub and spoke’ practices.
