While in the role of nursing student at any level, having a mentor who is also a faculty member in one’s School/College can be a useful professional developmental activity to prepare the student for next career steps. There are other times when having a mentor can be useful to the emerging nurse educator/nurse scientist, as well. When nearing the end of a PhD in nursing program and about to embark on the career of a nurse faculty member/nurse scientist, is a time when having a mentor, especially one from a different part of the country or world, can provide unique opportunities. In this chapter, we will explore the benefits and challenges of having a mentor in one’s general area of scholarship and examine opportunities related to the role of the nurse faculty member/nurse scientist. We will explore benefits related to group mentoring and we will evaluate how these relationships are of benefit not only for mentees and mentors but also explore how a mentorship relationship can go beyond the initial mentoring pair. A model of mentoring will be presented as a way of conceptualizing the importance of mentoring beyond the PhD in nursing.
