Creating a Nursing Peer Mentorship Program:
Benefits to Students’ Health and Wellbeing
A collaborative initiative between faculty and students

Date: Wednesday, May 11, 2022
Time: 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. EST

As part of National Nursing Week, the CASN Mental Health Nurse Educator Interest Group would like to invite you to join their upcoming webinar. During this one-hour webinar, participants will hear from students and faculty who created nursing peer mentorship programs (NPMP). Students in Douglas College’s BSN Program in Coquitlam, BC will explain how their NPMP was started in 2010, and how it has supported students’ wellbeing over the last decade. Students from the Ingram School of Nursing, McGill University in Montreal will describe how their program generates a sense of belonging and connection amongst the undergraduate and graduate student body. The focus will be on sharing experiences of creating these NPMPs so that interested participants can use the information to implement a similar program at their institutions. A Q&A session will close the webinar. Ce webinaire est offert en anglais seulement. **The views and opinions expressed by the members of the Nurse Educators Interest Groups (CASN) do not necessarily reflect the views of CASN.
