The Nurse Educator Mentorship Program is a step-by-step guide for educational or practical institutions to build their own customized, internal mentoring program that is evidence-informed and responsive. It is designed to enable institutions to develop, implement, evaluate, and sustain a customized mentorship program that meets their needs.

This module has three components to help assess variables affecting mentoring and programs.

The first component provides an overview of different models of mentorship and delineates the strengths and limitations of each.
