Hello Fellow Nursing Students and Nurses,
To say my first semester as a nursing student was a bit rough is an understatement. It came as a huge surprise being that I was going into it with straight A's. While I had extremely supportive professors, I could have absolutely used advice from upperclassmen. I would like to establish a student mentor program for the incoming class. I would literally pull students I didn't know aside, and ask them about Patho or Clinicals. I found their advice to be gold.
If you have an established student mentor program at your university can you please tell me how it is set up? Is it mandatory? I want it to be randomly assigned, and I would love a letter to be present at orientation from their assigned mentor. This letter would ideally have encouraging words, but mostly suggestions for a successful semester.
Thanks in advance,
