The NURSE Corps Mentor Program is an invaluable resource that pairs self-selected NURSE Corps member with NURSE Corps scholars who are in training. The overall goal is to allow providers to share their experiences, best practices, and other lessons learned, with students who are transitioning from training to service. Mentors are available to discuss a variety of issues including, but not limited to: challenges faced during in-school training, service site selection, and professional development. Ultimately, the NURSE Corps Mentor Program is the means through which students can get the additional support they will need to enhance their ability to successfully practice in communities of greatest need.
