NURSE Corps Mentor Program

  • What is the NURSE Corps Mentor Program?

    The NURSE Corps Mentor Program is an invaluable resource that pairs self-selected NURSE Corps member with NURSE Corps scholars who are in training. The overall goal is to allow providers to share their experiences, best practices, and other lessons learned, with students who are transitioning from training to service. Mentors are available to discuss a variety of issues including, but not limited to: challenges faced during in-school training, service site selection, and professional development. Ultimately, the NURSE Corps Mentor Program is the means through which students can get the additional support they will need to enhance their ability to successfully practice in communities of greatest need.

  • Who is the program being offered to?

    The Mentor program is currently being offered to newly awarded NURSE Corps scholars.

  • What are the requirements for becoming a mentor?

    The requirements are simple. To become a mentor, you must be a current or former NURSE Corps member. Although there is no specific time commitment, mentors must be available and responsive to their mentee’s questions or requests for guidance.

  • How do I sign up to become a mentor or be paired with a mentor?

    If you would like to become a mentor, send an email to and let us know your licensure, specialty, city, state, and how many mentees you can mentor.

    If you are interested in being mentored, send an email to and let us know your location, licensure, and/or specialty preferences.
