    I’m not certain why you need a mentor, but I will be glad to be one for you. What is your next career move?

    I absolutely understand why you need a mentor and I commend you for recognizing it and seeking one. As a long-time nurse educator, I am well-aware of the difficulty of transitioning from the academic student world to the real world of practice. There is often significant reality shock and a mentor will provide both support and assist you in navigating the everyday as well as difficult, tasks. Good luck to you!

    In my opinion, if you’ve already been hired, the best mentor will likely come from you own unit.


    If your direction is ICU, one of the best Nursing Mentors, without really being present is this great book…

    Notes on ICU Nursing
    Critical Care FAQ Files from the MICU
    Mark Hammerschmidt, RN
    Jayne Mulholland, RN ,CEN, CCRN
    Infinity Publishing

    The book is written as if it were a nurse mentor working next to you in the ICU. Not in the ICU? Still a great book for any new RN.
