Title : Strengthening the nursing profession: The new paradigm of mentorship


The nursing profession is undergoing a transformative shift in response to the dynamic challenges of modern healthcare. This session explores the emerging paradigm of mentorship as a powerful catalyst for strengthening the nursing profession. Mentorship is evolving beyond its traditional role to address the complex demands of healthcare today and nurture the next generation of nurses.

The new paradigm of mentorship emphasizes a two-way exchange of knowledge and experience between nurses of all levels of experience. It extends beyond the confines of the workplace, encompassing digital platforms, communities, and formal mentorship programs. This evolution recognizes that mentorship is not solely a top-down process but rather a reciprocal relationship that enriches both mentor and mentee.

During the session we will examine research on the impact of mentorship to promote resilience in the face of healthcare challenges, and how these continued relationships play a pivotal role in addressing the nursing shortage by retaining talent and increasing job satisfaction.

In this session we will begin to re-evaluate the mentor-mentee relationship and assumed roles within the paradigm of communication and support. The integration of mentorship into nursing practice leveraging technology and digital platforms, enabling connectivism across geographical boundaries.

By the end of the session, the attendee will understand how to overcome perceived challenges of mentoring, and how to facilitate relationships as a driving force in strengthening the nursing profession. Further reimagining mentorship as a dynamic and reciprocal relationship, the nursing profession can embrace a more resilient and empowered future. Lastly, the attendee will understand how to create mentorship programs using exemplary models and historical perspectives.
