The Chiron Mentoring Program provides a forum to promote professional nurse leadership development. The program, divided into 3 phases, focuses on the development, implementation, and evaluation of an individualized leadership plan. During the first phase, mentors and mentees develop and refine a plan and network with other mentor/mentee pairs. In phase two, mentees implement their plan and with the guidance of the mentor periodically evaluate, revise and update the plan. Final outcome evaluation occurs during phase three. Leadership plans may be related to administration, research, policy development, or education. This poster presents the roles of the mentor and mentee in a plan that successfully jump-started a clinicians' career in academic nursing. The plan was composed of three areas, teaching, scholarship, and service and focused on preparing the mentee for a tenure track faculty position. The roles of the mentor/mentee and pair are described. Activities included selected readings and participation in an on-line education course to strengthen teaching skills. Scholarship activities consisted of writing a book chapter, submission of abstracts for podium and poster presentations at national conferences, and attendance at a Summer Nursing Research Institute. Collaboration with nationally renown researchers in the area of families with a child with a chronic illness was established. Service activities were increased through election to a Counselor position in the Beta Xi Chapter of Sigma, appointment to the education committee of a national nursing specialty organization and volunteer work with Special Olympics. Communication between mentor and mentee occurred frequently in person and via email. Frequent feedback, guidance, and support contributed to the success of this Chiron experience.
