Abstract

Background: In spite of the number of studies available in the field and policy documents developed both at the
national and the international levels, there is no reliable data available regarding the variation of roles occupied
by clinical mentors (CMs) across countries.
Objectives: To describe and compare the CM's role; responsibilities; qualifications; employment requirements
and experience in undergraduate nurse education as enacted in 11 European Union (EU) and non- EU countries.
Design: A case study design.
Participants and Setting: A panel of expert nurse educators from 11 countries within and outside of the EU
(Croatia, Czech Republic, England, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, and the USA).
Methods: A questionnaire containing both quantitative and qualitative questions was developed and agreed by
the panel using a Nominal Group Technique (NGT); four cycles of data collection and analysis were conducted
involving key experts in nursing education in each country.
