How is Mentor - Mentee Matching Handled Through RN Career Path Mentoring Platform?
We do not prescribe how you match mentors and mentees. The science about mentor-mentee matching is limited and unclear. We do suggest that you consider what methods for matching are workable in your work environment. Smaller units may choose a small group of nurses to act as primary mentors, while larger units may enlist large groups or even the entire staff with > 3 years of experience to be mentors. Matching can be done based on personal choice, common interests/hobbies, career goals/tracks, or even schedules. More information about ways to match mentors and mentees is available in the E-Resources Library which can be accessed from the home page after you are logged into RN Career Path.
