Hello Nursing Students, Alumni & Working Nurses:
We are seniors in a BSN program in Northern California who are interested in establishing a Student Nurse Mentoring Program at our nursing school. Do/did you have a mentoring program at your nursing school? Would you currently benefit (Students), or would you have benefited (Alumni & working RNs) from such a program at your nursing school? These are the questions we are exploring:
--What services do you think would be/have been most useful?
--What type of support/information would be/have been most helpful?
--What is the best way to promote such a program?
--Suggestions for recruiting mentors?
--Would you be/have been or are you a mentor at your own school?
--As an Alumni/working RN, how do you see yourself as being able to assist/support
student nurses (especially seniors)?
We welcome any and all comments or suggestions. If your nursing school has a Mentoring Program, we would be especially grateful for your insights about what has/hasn't worked in the development and implementation of your program, and how it has been received by your students (both mentor/mentoree perspectives).
Thank you for your time,
