What is mentoring? Mentorship is a relationship in which a more experienced person helps to guide a less experienced person. The mentor is a guide, expert, and a role model who helps develop new mentees. The American Nurses Association (2017) states that mentoring programs serve as a foundation for nurses. Nurse mentors help advance the nursing practice because it promotes learning and growth in the profession. Research states that a high percentage of new nurses, anywhere from 23-60%, leave their job or the profession altogether within two years. This program is designed to support you during the most challenging time of your career….. your first year of nursing.
What is a good mentor? A good mentor is a person that takes a personal interest in the mentoring relationship. Good mentors do not take their responsibility as a mentor lightly. A good mentor is committed to helping their mentees find success and gratification in their chosen profession.
