MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this program was to facilitate interconnectedness and a sense of community within the nursing programs at Vancouver Island University. Implemented in September 2019, the VIU Nursing Peer Mentorship Program partners mentees and mentors within each program to guide their educational experience. This research investigates student perspectives on whether PMPs are effective at (1) providing academic support and stress relief for student mentees, (2) developing leadership and teaching skills for student mentors, (3) preparing students for success in clinical practice for both mentees and mentors, and will also determine (4) what are the strengths and weaknesses of the current PMP structure.
