Abstract

Mentoring is a positive method for promoting professional development; however, there is little information in the literature addressing the use of mentoring with baccalaureate nursing students. Because professional socialization is a critical component of baccalaureate nursing education, mentoring would be an optimal methodology. The authors describe how a mentorship program combined with a professional role development course was integrated into a BSN nursing program. The evolution of the faculty-student mentorship program and the professional role development course is presented.
