Nurse-mentors can make a difference in mentees’ lives by sharing knowledge and providing constructive feedback and guidance about their career goals. Nurse-mentors can be registered nurses or professional school students who are interested in promoting and supporting students in their endeavors to become a nurser. Mentoring is done on a volunteer basis but commitment is an important factor for the success of the mentor-mentee relationship. Mentors provide mentorship in one or more of the following areas: e-mentoring (at least one hour/month), clinic or hospital shadowing and/or afterschool programs. Student mentors can also help faculty mentors in conducting hospital or clinic tours or afterschool clubs.

Students interested in nursing as a career can enroll in online mentorship or tag along sessions. Students have to be more than 18 years old to register online. Afterschool programs are offered for school-age students to introduce them to careers in healthcare, including nursing.

A Mentorship Manual describing the roles and responsibilities of the mentor and the mentee is available on the website. The Center for Future Health Professionals requests a minimum one-year commitment for the mentoring pairs. After that time, the mentoring relationship can continue for as long as the participants are willing.
