Nursing students and new graduates face a real challenge entering the field of nursing. Mentoring new nurses is a chance for more experienced professionals to take a new graduate ‘under their wing’ and make them feel an important part of the team.

The nurse mentor can help guide and support the newer nurse; teaching clinical skills, time management skills and helping them find ways to deal with the stresses inherent within the profession.

It is an opportunity to truly make a difference in the skill set and mind set of our profession. A good mentor not only strengthens the new professional, but the person as well.
