Mentoring Program


Applications for mentors and mentees are now being accepted for the inaugural cohort.

To apply see the bottom of this page.


GOALS OF THE MENTORING PROGRAM

  • Develop the next generation of Nurse Leaders

  • Facilitate networking and connections among members

  • Provide a mentor for new nurse leaders who would like a mentor

  • Leverage the expertise and experience of the large DONL membership

  • Support succession planning of leadership roles


PARTICIPANTS AND MATCHING

  • The participants express interest by filling out an online application. The program coordinators match the mentors with several things in mind:

  • Current role or aspiring to leadership.

  • Mentors had some experience that the person doing the matching thought was relevant. Example:  A mentor who currently works in the Wilmington, may have been matched with someone in a lower Delaware location. The mentor may have had previous experience in a like setting.

  • Type of interest; advanced education; role in practice or education, or other stated interests.

  • Potential for ease of access. Please note most mentors are from the Twin City metro area.  In some cases matches are made within a larger healthcare organization, in some cases not.


GOAL SETTING

  • Mutual goals should be set and agreed upon to help the mentor and mentee focus their time together and to help measure success.
