The Mentor &Mentee Program is designed to promote cohesiveness among nursing students and provide a nurturing environment while promoting leadership in future nurses. Georgia Baptist College of Nursing has taken pride in fostering the relationship between our nursing students and plans on continuing this program at full strength throughout the years. In this program,our senior nursing students take on the responsibility of assuming a mentor role for our junior nursing students.
Responsibilities of mentors include:
Consistent contact with mentee/s via email,phone,and/or text.
Mentors keep in mind that texting can be a simple yet powerful gesture that can provide the proper support and advocacy needed for an overwhelmed student.
GBANS considers this the primary and most crucial responsibility as a mentor.
Understand that Mentors may be the frequent initiator of conversation.
As a role model for mentees,our mentors understand that it is their responsibility to keep in touch with their mentees.
Provide new nursing students with advocacy,support,and to serve as a well-intentioned role model,advisor,and guide.
In addition to this,the Mentor &Mentee program consists of pre-planned social events to help facilitate cohesiveness and bonding among GBCN nursing students. A common pursuit of a profession is only the beginning,for true friendship and bonds occur when collaboration and leadership take place among fellow nursing students.
