What the program is not:
An option or excuse for you not to follow your institutional policies, procedures, handbook, guidelines, or course syllabi. Our mentors are committed to guiding and supporting you as a young nurse and future peer, to the extent that you are responsible in complying with and completing your individual program requirements. The program developer and mentors will not be your “savior”, “parent”, “parole officer”, or that “friend” that only tells you what you want to hear. What a nurse mentor is:
Our nurse mentors are nurses and nursing students who have expressed a commitment to developing future nurses. They are skilled in supporting, coaching, and guiding others. They embody nursing and the profession and want to share their knowledge and experiences with others. They will be a friend, guide, listener, role model, resource, advocate, facilitator, and challenger.
We hope that you will consider taking the STEPS being offered to help you succeed in nursing
