Calling All Mentors
While a student's last semester is exciting, it can also be an
uncertain and intimidating time. Do you remember facing
graduation and independent patient care? Did a kind mentor
or experienced colleague take you under their wing to show you
the ropes? You can be that encouraging presence for current
students. PA College has an entirely digital alumni-student
mentoring program.
Cris Rhyner '17, '19, RN, BSN, is a current mentor. " I became a
nurse recently, graduating with a lifetime of extensive traveling
and experience under my belt. Even so, the first year after
graduation was overwhelming, " she says.
" I wanted the opportunity to help students through that
anxiety. So far, I've answered questions about how to study for
the NCLEX and how to prepare for the nursing world outside
of school. I'm looking forward to the opportunity to interact
with more students. "
