NurseMentor is still open!

Mentoring makes a difference! All undergraduate UCalgary Nursing students and alumni RNs are invited to register for the 2021-2022 year.

"Pam’s mentorship has been empowering. She reminds me to become comfortable with uncertainty while navigating change."

Nursing student & mentee

NurseMentor is open for registration for Fall/Winter 2021/22!

UCalgary Nursing alumni and undergraduate students interested in mentoring are invited to join now, or to contact the coordinator for more information:


Through NurseMentor, alumni of UCalgary Nursing have helped students become more confident nurses.
As we start planning for our fifth year, to begin in the Fall of 2021, we hope to connect more talented RNs with our dedicated nursing students to share mutual insight and guidance. The upcoming season will run from September 2021 to April 2022.

The purpose of NurseMentor is to support undergraduate student nurses in their professional and personal development and to engage nursing alumni in a meaningful way. Mentoring is a success when both student and mentor are committed to a reciprocal relationship.

All nursing students deserve a mentor, while nurses need a fresh perspective and reminders of their original love of nursing. Consider being a mentor to an aspiring nurse, or seeking a mentor to help clarify your own path as a new nurse.

How it works

1: Register

In this step you will be asked a few questions about what interests you and what you hope to gain from mentoring. This will help us determine a best fit for you.

2: We do the matching

The NurseMentor coordinator will match you with a compatible mentor or mentee when one becomes available, and you will be notified.

3: You get connected

Student mentees should initiate the first contact with their mentor. Pairs determine how and when to connect - ideally, two contacts per month. Good communication is the key to a successful mentorship.
