Background and Significance: In countries where doctoral education is in its early stages, a number of insights gained from Fulbright Scholars with extensive advising and mentoring experiences can create an environment of optimum learning experiences. This requires adopting innovative methods for doctoral student advising and role modeling for other faculty members. Discussion: A strong academic foundation that provides a balanced doctoral curriculum, including philosophy, theory, research methodology, and subject matter contents, are essential as the basis for scholarship. Early selection of advisors can ensure that students are given clear direction and guidance from the beginning, without multiple sources of conflicting advice. Students often do not have the sophistication to navigate their way through guidance from multiple advisors. This advisor assignment/selection needs to be founded on a number of principles: the advisor will ideally have had experience in the student's subject matter area and/or in the methodology that the study question calls for. Students should be able to choose among a number of potential advisees. Early identification of suitable statistical consultation in the design stages, and subsequently in the analysis phase, is as important as the selection of an advisor. Often, international and in-country faculty are coupled as advisors, which benefits the student, while providing role modeling for the national faculty member, for whom this may be the first advising experience. Such networking benefits the national faculty member, and ultimately provides seamless leadership for the student. Advisors are the advocates and role models for doctoral students. Advocating involves providing students with opportunities for numerous professional experiences, such as submitting abstracts to national and international conferences, writing and submitting manuscripts for publication, addressing reviewer comments, role modeling ethical conduct in research, and informing students on matters relevant to publishing. Conclusions: Suggestions for some of the most critical considerations about doctoral student advising are offered. These include start early, meet often, and offer constructive advice, guidance and encouragement. Most importantly, provide the kind of role modeling that is optimum for the future of the doctorally prepared faculty that will take on the mantel of leadership of the future nursing profession.
