Abstract

Academic advising is an important faculty role; it not only assists students in selecting appropriate courses, but it also helps them make choices about personal and career goals. Using a theoretical framework to guide the advising process can make advising sessions more efficient and effective. One nursing theory, modeling and role-modeling, is presented here as a framework for student advising. Modeling and role-modeling theory can guide the advisor to establish a caring interpersonal relationship with the student and plan individualized strategies to meet educational goals.
