Mentoring Program

POCN has listened to the requests of the NP/PA community to develop a program to help with professional growth, and responded with an exciting and unique mentoring program.

Peer Coaching

If you are still interested in supporting the NP/PA community but have less time to commit, you can still be involved. Consider registering as a POCN Peer Coach. Peer coaches will have opportunities to provide valuable support to NP/PAs. For those who are interested in supporting other NP/PAs but either do not have the time to commit to the requirements or are just shy of the criteria for mentors, register to be a peer coach.

Mentors

Mentoring relationships are a shared opportunity for learning and growth. The mentor-mentee relationship is just as rewarding for the mentor as it is for the mentee. As an NP/PA mentor, your professional and/or clinical experience will serve as an invaluable resource to mentees who are looking for direction in their professional development or who need a trusted advisor to help them cope with the challenges they face in their profession. Mentors display leadership qualities – playing critical roles in increasing knowledge, assisting in defining and setting realistic goals and expectations, and offering feedback and guidance – to enhance professional growth.

There are a limited number of paid mentor opportunities, which require a commitment to mentor a group of 5 to 6 mentees over 6 months.
