Encouraging & Equipping Leaders
The APHON Mentoring Program links members in their mutual pursuit of higher goals in the areas of leadership, professional/career development, role integration, pursuit of higher education, research, nursing teaching/education, clinical development and project development.
The APHON Mentorship Program is available to all APHON members. The program matches mentors and mentees based upon application commitment and interests. The goal of the program is to facilitate member’s growth in their nursing careers and support leadership development within APHON.

The APHON Mentoring Program Committee facilitates and provides support to program participants. Manuals and learning materials are provided upon entering the program. Participants will be asked to report their progress to the APHON Mentoring Program Committee every six months.

The committee will review reports and offer support to each mentor/mentee team to ensure success for both participants.
Open enrollment in the mentoring program is year-round.
