What Mentoring Means for IPFW Nursing

IMG_1235.JPG

The roles of professional advisors and faculty are similar, yet different, in student career progression and student success. While advisors are well versed in many areas of student resources, student progression in the curriculum, and the workings of the programs and IPFW, the faculty are each “experts” in specific nursing realms.
For example, Professor Carol Crosby is a wonderful resource for Law and Ethical Informatics and Patient Safety while Professor Denise Jordan excels in Community Nursing and reaching out to the Underserved. Posters are throughout the Department of Nursing and on the Nursing website directing students to their Faculty Mentors. A Mentoring Fair is held each semester. This is an opportunity for students to peruse the area and learn of faculty’s areas of expertise. Faculty are available to meet one-on-one and begin to develop these mentoring relationships. The atmosphere is welcoming, informative, and relational.
