Student mentors feature in the Nursing Standard

30 January 2012

LJMU's Faculty of Health and Applied Social Sciences recently featured in the Royal College of Nursing publication, the Nursing standard.

The article focused on the student mentoring service (SMS) which was established in September 2007 in the Faculty. The service involves Level 5 and 6 undergraduate students undertaking training so they may provide appropriate support to Level 4 students.

The full article may be viewed here.

Senior Lecturer Frances Colbron, who introduced the scheme, said:

"The Service was set up to offer a network of student mentors to assist first year university students to settle into university life. This has proved popular with first year students who have found it helpful to obtain support from their peers. The student mentors are from all departments across the Faculty including Paramedic,Social Work and Nursing students."
