Nursing student & mentee
NurseMentor is UCalgary Nursing's mentoring program since 2017
UCalgary Nursing alumni and undergraduate students interested in mentoring are invited to contact us by email for more information.
Through NurseMentor, alumni of UCalgary Nursing have helped students become more confident nurses.
In our fifth year or mentoring, we hope to connect more talented RNs with our dedicated nursing students to share mutual insight and guidance. The current season runs 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
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.
