For this week’s discussion I chose to write scenario 12 Nurse- Nurse. I really believe that being in preceptor’s role makes all the difference in new nurses’ life and it can also be very rewarding. By precepting we can be role models in our nursing professional. “It seems natural and obvious that all nurses, given their education, would share similar values and beliefs about patient care” (Porter-O’Grady & Malloch, 2016, p211). Preparing students and new nurses to transition from being new to the field and help them to achieve competency and proficiency is still remain concern in our hospital or work area. A lot of nurses are refusing to be a preceptors or mentors and not valuing sources of academic support. “The coaching/mentoring process provides the opportunity to continually seek open, honest, and timely feedback as well as an opportunity to share one’s experiences and wisdom”
In my school and community, we have found that there is a large setback with the incoming freshmen and their ability to adapt to the new atmosphere and changes of high school. They either have social problems, home life problems, or high school is just a huge change for them. Six years ago, my school created a program hoping to solve that problem, the mentor/leadership program, which is open to juniors and seniors. I applied, and was accepted into this program my junior year. In the mentor program you meet with a freshmen every week and discuss some of the challenges they are facing while adjusting to high school. You are also able to discuss personal problems during your session as well, like home life or self confidence struggles. When you first enter the program, you go through an eight week training period. The training includes confidentiality, building rapport, how to get a connection, and digging deeper into questions to get to know your freshmen. Throughout the year, your freshmen, or mentee, becomes a lot closer to you, and you build such
The meaning of mentoring is a person who gives a younger or less experienced person help and advice over a period of time, especially at work or school. The characteristics of being a mentor are, Approachability, availability, and the ability to listen. As well as the Ability and willingness to communicate what you know.

Judging someone or making assumptions based on physical appearance can never determine the environment they were raised in. Just because someone is in college it should not suggest that their family members are college educated. There are many people at The University of Louisiana at Monroe that are considered first-generation individuals. As of 2010 the National Center of Education indicated that 30 percent of college freshmen are first generation college students. First generation students are fresh to the ideal of college and they need a mental support system during so because most of them are not equipped to deal with tough situations.
I believe that I use all three rhetorical elements effectively in my proposal. In my proposal, I used storytelling to create an emotional connection with the audience. I talked about the difficulties of being an intern and how it made me feel. Not only that, I also included anecdotes from other interns who shared my sentiment.
This is a letter of strong support for my professor and mentor, Dr. Hasan Deniz for the GPSA outstanding mentor award. I believe that he is the best instructor I have ever had. Because of his tremendous commitment to my learning, and my fellow students as well, I believe that he is by far the best choice for this prestigious award. Dr. Deniz’s dedication to his students’ is legendary on campus. He is an outstanding leader and he shows tireless efforts in addressing and raising awareness about mentoring. But what is also staggering is how the efforts of one person, one particular person, can truly make a difference in a student’s life. Dr. Deniz has provided support in multiple ways,
A mentor in nursing is defined as someone who can facilitate learning, supervise and asses nursing students in a practice setting. This in turn produces efficient and effective students who become competent and will have mastered the craft and art of caring. Mentorship is significant to students as it helps students develop their professional identities, attributes and competence and also enables students to learn through the creation of the supportive working and learning environment as an individual (Clutterbuck 2004). Decisions taken by mentors in assessing students have significant impacts on securing the nursing workforce in the future. This is because they help safeguard the ongoing excellence in the delivery of personalized patient care while making a major contribution to the development of the nursing profession. This essay explains how to develop learning, teaching and assessment strategies to support the student to achieve a successful outcome.
My monthly mentor meeting this month is something I have been looking forward to for almost a month now. It was almost a month ago that I went to a concert in Greensboro, NC and saw a band called Phinehas perform. After they had played their set I went up to their merch table where they were hanging out with fans and asked them if they would be my monthly mentor. To my surprise they said yes. The band member that I met with was Lee Humerian the drummer for the band. The reason that I chose to meet with them (on top of the fact that they are my favorite band) was because I was curious as to how they were informed of their call to be in the world of metalcore music. The reason I was curious to this is because it has been a dream of mine
A peer mentor should be empathetic, sincere, trustworthy, and ambitious. ULV consists of several diverse students, so it is necessary for a peer mentor to be able to understand the various challenges each of their mentees either face or could potentially face. I assume that the mentees are to look up to their mentors and for that reason, a mentor should be sincere and trustworthy. Mentees should be comfortable being vulnerable around their mentors and should expect genuine responses from them. One of the most significant qualities a peer mentor should have is ambition. Students are often more inspired by other students who are driven and who have some degree of knowledge as to what they want to do in their future rather than not. These qualities will allow the peer mentors and mentees to build a strong relationship, encouraging success all around.
It is evident that one of the most valuable attributes one can have is to be an excellent mentor. Holding the characteristic ability to be a great mentor will allow a person to lead and encourage the growth of another person in many different ways. Mentoring plays a significant factor in the nursing profession because of a few reasons. A successful mentor will communicate high expectations, will be a good listener, has empathy, offers encouragement, and feels generous. (Zerwekh & Garneau, 2014, p. 57) According to Zerwekh & Garneau (2014), someone considered as a mentor should have your best interest at heart and should bolster your self-confidence (p. 59). In all, a mentor is an individual who holds the role of a leader, teacher, coach, motivator,
As stated by Tjan (2017) Mentorship comes in many savors. It is not continuously effective unless leaders bear in intellect a few common standards. The greatest mentors do not place the relationship before the mentorship. All as well regularly, mentorship can advance into efficient strategy instep of something bona fide and relationship-based. For genuine mentorship to succeed, there needs to be a pattern chemistry between a mentor and mentee. “Studies show that even the best-designed mentoring programs are no substitute for a genuine, intercollegial relationship between mentor and mentee. One piece of research, conducted by Belle Rose Ragins, a mentoring expert and professor at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, demonstrated that unless mentees have a basic relationship with their mentors, there is no discernable difference between mentees and those not mentored.” This is to say that mentoring requires affinity. At best, it impels individuals to break from their formal parts
Drawing on the existing definitions, mentorship can be defined as a relationship between the experienced mentor and a less experienced student teacher, whose main goal hinges on developing professional skills via sharing knowledge (either practical or theoretical) with each other and reflecting on the obtained experience. Mentoring relationships evolve as hierarchical at the beginning, accompanied with the mentor’s careful guidance and support toward the mentee, who gradually turns into a full-fledged autonomous teacher, thereby altering the hierarchical model into a non-hierarchical
In conclusion, a business mentor is not trying to sell a product or service to you. You most likely do not have anything they want; material or money. You pose no threat to them as a competition in their business. They are already dimmed a successful business man. Even if you generate lead for him/her, all they are going to teach you is how to generate more leads. Because of these reasons, there are almost no chances of trust issues.
