Third-year student nurse
NurseMentor is winding down for the current season. It will open again soon for registration!
However, UCalgary Nursing alumni and undergraduate students interested in the upcoming mentoring season are invited to contact the NurseMentor coordinator now: email@example.com.
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.
Interested in mentoring? Or being mentored?
Mentors and student mentees are invited to join for the new season of NurseMentor to start in September 2021!
Contact the coordinator using the button below to get on the list. You will be contacted when registration opens.
How it works
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.
