Abstract:

Poster presented on Saturday, September 22, 2012

Kappa Tau developed an e-mentoring program for new inductees to be matched with board members based on similar interests. All new inductees were sent a personalized e-mail welcoming them to Kappa Tau and asking them to fill out a short survey. Board members were e-mailed a similar survey. The mentoring relationships were matched on similar practice areas or recreational interests. Coaching for both the mentors and the prot�g�e was sent out in e-mail to engage them in the program. The mentoring process received positive feedback from both mentors and prot�g�s. Mentors reported being re-energized in their commitment to the organization and to their nursing profession. A new policy was developed to wear name tags to all meetings and to encourage board members to introduce themselves to members. We paid for new inductees to attend our annual Heart of Leadership Dinner. This dinner has no formal agenda, which gives our members the time to network with other members and nurses in the community. All prot�g�s were encouraged to attend this dinner to connect with their mentor in person. These initiatives have all contributed to a warm and welcoming Kappa Tau chapter environment.
