CMSA Mentoring Matters Take a Look Back to See Where You Have Come From… Before You Start the Climb Again BY WENDY DEVREUGD, RN, BSN, PHN, FNP, CCDS, MBA K 26 indred Healthcare and Samuel Merritt University in Oakland, Calif., are in their third year of an educational partnership for Kindred’s MSN in Case Management Mentorship Program. Samuel Merritt is one of a very few universities in the United States that has a Master’s in Nursing Case Management Program. Kindred found that the organization needed excellent case managers to sustain quality patient care planning as turnover occurred, so it made absolute sense to look at an ongoing partnership to create a “pipeline” of these competently trained (albeit new) registered nurse (RN) case managers whom the organization could support in growth and development through a formal mentorship program. CMSA TODAY Issue 6 • 2012 • DIGITAL But as in any difficult mountain climb with a forward-looking goal to reach the top, a critical examination of all challenges and barriers must be done to make sure all footsteps are placed correctly. Kindred and Samuel Merritt University (SMU) also found it necessary along the way to stop, take a breath, and pause to look back on the progress made together over the past three years; even as the next steps are taken to build the future http://www.naylornetwork.com/cms-nxt/
