Can you advise this student nurse?
“I’m friends with a lot of other student nurses. As they’ve gone through their courses and various placements, it seems like all my friends have been able to find nursing mentors.
“But I haven’t. I’ve had a few instructors I’ve really admired, but it hasn’t ever seemed like any of them were interested in building a closer mentor-mentee relationship.
“From my friends’ experiences, I was under the impression that this relationship comes about organically. Is there something I’m not doing – a step in the process I’m missing?
“I want do be as successful a nurse as I possibly can be, and I’d really like a nursing role model to guide me in the right direction.
”Any advice at all on how to develop this relationship would be appreciated. If I can’t find a mentor in my university or on my placements, is there anywhere else I can seek one out?”
