Acting as a mentor is a very rewarding experience: Vitalité Health Network

By Regis Phillips May 30, 2024 | 8:13 AM

Vitalité Health Network is calling on all retired registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and patient care attendants to become mentors.

Vitalité officials said the program was developed and implemented throughout 2023 to support new nursing staff.

Their main mission is to exchange ideas, share experiences and develop a relationship of trust with recent nursing school graduates or foreign-trained nurses to improve their reception, orientation and integration into the workplace.

“Mentors have the opportunity to invest in the professional development of our new employees and to contribute to their successful integration by offering them an attentive ear and valuable advice,” said Allison White, Corporate Director of Nursing.

“Acting as a role model, a support and a source of encouragement is a very rewarding experience.”

Vitalité also says schedules are flexible and can adapt to each mentor’s availability.

Individuals interested in paid mentoring opportunities can contact Patrick Houndeton, Administrative Assistant, Nursing Administration, by sending an email to patricklionel.houndeton@vitalitenb.ca or calling 506-862-4265.
