Mentoring Program

DONL Mentorship Program

Applications for mentors and mentees are now being accepted for the inaugural cohort. Please follow the link below for the Mentorship Program application.

Applications will be accepted until December 31, 2019

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.
