Who can serve as a mentor?

Any UW-Madison School of Nursing alumni can serve as a mentor regardless of program completed.  

How many students am I expected to mentor?

Alumni mentors are matched with one student. 

How often do I have to meet with my mentee?

Mentoring pairs decide how often they will meet or talk and what types of conversations and activities they will engage in together. The School of Nursing team will recommend connecting at least once per month but ultimately it is up to the pair to discuss and decide. 

Do I get to choose my mentee?

The School of Nursing Mentorship team selects pairs, but you may indicate a student to be matched with. There would not be a guaranteed match, but the Mentorship team would take your request into consideration.  

Do I have to live in Madison to be a mentor?

No, location does not need to be a barrier to your participation. Over half our mentors live outside the state of Wisconsin.
