Nurses and midwives are asked to demonstrate the 6Cs (care, compassion, competence, communication, courage and commitment) of nursing in ‘everything we do’. Mentors have a crucial role in the provision of health care and in educating nurses and midwives. This learning module aims to provide guidance to mentors on how to integrate the 6Cs into their mentorship practice, when mentoring pre-registration nursing and midwifery students. It emphasises the importance for mentors of role modelling in relation to the 6Cs. Addressing each of the 6Cs in turn, the module outlines strategies that may be used in mentorship practice to endorse the 6Cs with pre-registration students. The module concludes by considering the mentor’s role in robust assessment of the 6Cs.
