Mentoring is your chance to connect with an academically-strong student who can guide you as you enter the nursing program because they’ve been there and know what it takes to succeed. Your mentor will support you, answer your questions and help you conquer any hurdles you encounter as you work toward your dream of a nursing degree.
Peer mentors are second, third and fourth semester students who are thriving in their classes. They have strong interpersonal skills and are picked for their ability to provide support and guidance to new nursing majors. All of our peer mentors are trained in mentoring and familiar with campus resources. Get to know our mentors:
