Event Details

Mentoring at its heart is a process in which a wise and trusted counselor or teacher, known as a mentor, provides sage advice to a less experienced individual, known as a mentee. Mentoring has been acknowledged and well documented as an effective process to support the development of nurses at all levels. With the sweeping changes occurring in health care, mentoring can help new and experienced nurse leaders navigate the complexity of the nurse leader role. Developing and maintaining formal mentorship programs to address the developmental needs of nurse leaders should be a priority for nursing but can also be challenging to sustain.


A Statewide Mentorship Program (MP) was developed by ONLNJ in 2010 to provide an opportunity for nurses throughout the state to be mentored by experienced nursing colleagues. A qualitative study was conducted to understand the lived experience of mentors and mentees who participated in this statewide program with four themes emerging from the focus group interviews; 1) Mentorship program as a lifeline for the mentee; 2) Moving from reluctance to reliance; 3) Instilled courage; 4) Gaining confidence. For the mentees, the program was reported to be "like a gift" and helped them to learn more about themselves and helped to reduce self-doubt. Involvement in the mentorship program instilled courage and provided them with confidence. Mentors helped them to support their own choices and decisions to become more effective leaders.


Mentorship programs are effective mechanisms to support leaders or prospective leaders in their roles in an often chaotic and challenging health care environment. The intent of the ONLNJ Mentorship program is to facilitate relationship building for personal and professional growth of ONLNJ members at all levels.
