Saara Kukkohovi

I have studied Finnish, Slovenian, Italian, Spanish and Lithuanian nursing students' mentors' mentoring competence in clinical practice. Clinical practice is an important part of nursing education, as they account for at least half of the minimum duration of studies in the countries of the European Union. Mentoring is central to the success of the clinical practice, so researching and developing mentors' mentoring competence is important. I did this research as part of the QualMent project.

I have participated in strategy work and I’m expertise in education developing and teaching materials designing. I've got experience in designing and constructing e-learning courses.
