Abstract:
Problem: Mentoring provides a crucial link in professional CNS development. Experienced CNSs have much to share, however, novice CNSs may have difficulty finding mentors in their immediate environment. Developing a mentoring relationship does not need to require face-to-face contact. Purpose/Description: How can mentoring occur in the face of geographical boundaries? How can trust be built without being face-to-face? The terms virtual, distance, and e-Mentoring all represent a mentoring relationship where two parties are physically located in different geographical areas, but the outcome is consistent - sharing of knowledge and wisdom. Participants in this program will be able to: 1) discuss the pros and cons of long-distance mentoring and 2) identify strategies to develop an individualized experience based on mentor and mentee perspectives. Methods: Mentoring across boundaries can be a viable option for supporting professional growth and development of CNS's. Presenters will offer pitfalls and benefits gleaned from long-distance mentoring partners. Evaluation: Before you attempt long distance mentoring, assess your personal beliefs, choose to recognize it as a viable strategy, build enthusiasm, and find ways to maximize return on investment. This will assist in evaluating the outcomes of the mentoring relationship in meeting needs. Implications: Long distance mentoring allows participants to focus more intently because meetings are planned in advance and both parties "get down to business" sooner. It allows for mentoring in highly individualized or specialized areas. It acquaints participants with unfamiliar cultures and geographies, which translates into CNSs who are more culturally and professionally savvy.
