This thesis focuses on the competencies that mentors need to guide student nurses. By a literature review consisting of research out of different relevant contexts, a list with 20 competencies was drawn up. With the use of focus groups, this list was tested on it’s relevance within the University Medical Center Utrecht. By adding, combining and deleting competencies, the focus groups resulted in an acuminated list of 17 competencies. Finally a survey was used to define the matter of importance of these competencies. The survey showed that the seven most important competencies of a mentor are: commitment, enthusiasm, feedback, objective assessment, open communication, responding to education of student and transferring knowledge.
