Mentors are vital for supporting nursing students' learning in practice, but increasing demands on registered nurses can make this a challenging part of their role. This article describes how a new education team in Jersey used the World Café approach to working with mentors on a mentor update day. It explains how the café environment helped mentors to share ideas, develop opportunities to support students' learning in practice areas, increase interdepartmental working and increased communication between the education department and mentors.
