Welcome to ANA's Mentoring Program

ANA’s Mentoring Program is a members-only benefit designed specifically to match new RNs with more experienced nurses. This program is completely virtual so your Mentor/Mentee relationship can take place online or via phone.

The nursing profession is both exciting and challenging and we understand the importance of having a supportive and nurturing relationship with an experienced RN during the crucial transition from nursing school to practice. With ANA’s Mentoring Program, you can find your ideal match and start connecting right away.

We recommend that Mentors and Mentees ask for a connection with only one person at a time in order to get the most out of the experience and partnership.  Select a Mentor or Mentee who is most suited to your mentoring needs.

New to nursing? It’s simple for new RNs with less than five years of experience to enroll as a mentee. 

More experienced? If so, we need your leadership and knowledge to support and coach new RNs.
