Mentor / Mentee Program
Whether you want to become a mentor or mentee, INA has opportunities for both
Our mentorship program benefits newer nurses looking to make a smooth transition into the workforce
Take advantage of this shared opportunity for learning & growth and build long lasting relationships
Mentoring has been proven to be a successful way for one to gain professional growth. The International Nurses Association recognizes the value of mentoring for both the mentors and the mentees. Through this program, you will guide each other through the workplace, your roles, the political environment you may be in all the while building strong, healthy relationships with one another. There will be well-defined learning goals, clear expectations and open lines of communication that will help guide nurses through their career.
Whether you are a newly graduated nurse, assuming a new position or you’re looking for guidance in the nursing field, you may need to learn the ins and outs from an experienced nurse. The International Nurses Association pairs mentors with mentees based on several distinguished criteria including years of experience in the nursing field, specialty, etc. You will be expected to voice your concerns, questions or any obstacles you may be facing in your field to your mentor. In return, you will receive one-on-one guidance with your mentor that will help you navigate through and in turn, have a hand in helping your professional growth.
The International Nurses Association pairs mentors with mentees based on several distinguished criteria including years of experience in the nursing field, specialty, etc. As a mentor, you will have a first hand in helping to advance the future of nursing. You will be creating a warm, safe and accepting environment for the mentee to approach you with questions and/or concerns they may have in the field. Successful mentors have a confidence in themselves and their knowledge in order to pass on that wisdom to others. With the successful completion of the program, all mentors will become INA Certified Mentors.
Mentors and Mentees will be matched to one another using specific criteria based on each individual's needs and experience. Once aligned to a fellow nurse, you will receive an introductory email along with details on how to access your account. Each of you then are required to submit a monthly progress report that will be evaluated by our Mentorship Program Coordinator. At the 6 month successful completion of the program, the mentors will now become an INA Certified Mentor and the mentees will receive a certificate among completion. The experience and knowledge to gain from the program is endless and we hope these relationships you build will become lifelong.
Both the Mentor and Mentee will receive a personalized, embossed certificate. The Mentor will now be an INA Certified Mentor and will be among the first chosen to mentor other nurses in the future. Both will also receive an INA tote bag full of nursing essentials to help make your day better and brighter!
