Developing your Career in Nursing...
When a mentee needs to develop transferrable skills, such as communication skills, leadership, research, organizational development or educational skills, a mentor who may not be a nurse and who may not work in oncology, may have the appropriate expertise. For this reason, we recruit outside of the nursing profession and already have a number of mentors that are:
- Social workers
- Policy makers
This approach has been encouraged in various healthcare settings, as illustrated by these publications:
