Nursing students peer mentoring

Purpose

The purpose of the nursing student peer mentoring program is to assist the first-semester nursing student with his or her transition, challenges, and progression in nursing school.

What is Student Peer Mentoring?
When a student (second, third or fourth semester) has been through a specific course or program and interacts with a first-semester student who is currently enrolled in that program, he/she provides:
  • information concerning campus, course concepts, and activities
  • support in social and academic progression
  • encouragement toward academic success
  • open communication by engaging and promoting a positive relationship
