The ‘Working with Wisdom’ (WwW) mentoring and coaching model will take advantage of the knowledge and skills that experienced nurses and midwives developed during their career. The model enables senior nurses and midwives to support, mentor and educate the incoming generation of graduates, allowing the accumulated knowledge and skills of the experienced nurse/midwife to be transferred to the early career nurses and midwives.

You will accept accountability for their own practice standards, activities delegated to others and the guidance and development of less experienced staff.

The RN/M2C role continues to be predominantly clinical in nature; however, employees are assigned appropriate portfolios including precepting, mentoring and coaching nursing/midwifery students, new staff and staff with less experience. The allocation of portfolio responsibilities should be negotiated with each employee and be consistent with the career development plan for the employee as determined by their performance review/development plan.
