Throughout 2020 we’re providing leadership and development training for a select group of nurse educators chosen through a peer-nomination process. Our mentees join monthly interactive virtual meetings with the Kaplan Nursing Team to discuss topics such as curriculum development, trends in teaching, preparing for Next Generation NCLEX, overcoming professional challenges, and more. 

I applied to this program hoping to get guidance in an area I had been lacking, a professional mentor in academia, and that’s exactly what I have found... 2020 has been difficult for us all and I have been trying to reach out to more people who impact my life and make it more positive. So thank you!

I would like to start off by saying how much I enjoy our virtual sessions. I always feel refreshed and inspired after our meetings. You are the BEST listener and always give such sound & helpful advice & help me think outside the box.

Learn Alongside Our Mentees

We had thousands of applications to be part of our mentorship program, and while we were only able to choose a select group, we want our training to be inclusive of any nurse educators who might benefit from it. Each month, our mentors write an educational summary of the latest training topic.
