Mentoring Oncology Clinical Nurses to Become Nurse Leaders

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As stated in the 2013 HRSA report, The U.S. Nursing Workforce: Trends in Supply and Education, nearly one million nurses—about a third of the current workforce—will reach retirement age over the next 10 to 15 years. Retirement of such a large number of RNs means a significant loss of experiential knowledge and leadership, and a great need to foster nursing leadership skill development among clinical nurses. A mentorship program is one way to develop the next generation of oncology nursing leaders. Explore tools and strategies for implementing a mentorship program for aspiring nurse leaders, and formulate a clear understanding of training activities that teach oncology nursing leadership.


  1. Formulate a clear understanding of training activities that teach nursing leadership.
  2. Provide attendees with opportunity to learn how to start and maintain a mentorship program.
  3. Demonstrate how mentorship programs help retain and boost staff engagement.
