Mentoring in Nursing through Narrative Stories Across the World
Mentorship is defined as a collaborative relationship between individuals based on interdependence, cultivation, and trust. The benefits of using mentorship models, in the academic and clinical environments have been demonstrated multiple times within research literature. It has become increasingly vital for the students to receive guidance from a thesis mentor while undertaking their own thesis project. This is supported by literature review, which highlights the importance of mentorship programs in building research skills, encouraging critical thinking, and facilitating personal and professional growth. The World Health Organization has recognized the role of a mentor as a key component in training, sustaining, and maintaining the nursing profession. It has been observed that nursing students (mentees), especially those pursing graduate studies, are gravitating toward research under the guidance of nominated faculty members, who support them throughout their research journey. This chapter centers on the pivotal role of mentors in motivating students or mentees toward a positive change within their career, attitude, and relational aspect of academics.
