The focus of this book is mentoring within educational and health care settings, where nursing students and professional nurses must learn how to assess and negotiate multiple systems. Entering a new system, whether it is an educational environment or a health care environment, is conceptualized as a new culture. This book discusses various perspectives of mentoring, and, as the individual reader reflects upon the provided TIPS (thoughts, ideas, possible strategies), it presents strategies unique to each person regarding how to maximize the mentoring experience within a specific mentor structure.

In this book, we have provided practical advice for how to mentor students at all levels within the educational system as well as new and seasoned nurses within health care systems as they assume new roles. Mentees/protégés will learn how to request and apply guidance from their mentors. Students will also receive advice on seeking out mentors and resolving issues when the relationships are not meeting their needs. As the environments in which we find ourselves become increasingly global, students and nurses in the United States and those coming to the United States have a variety of expectations and fears coupled with cultural, gender, and religious considerations that affect how they will function in a new society.

Review:

Increasingly, nursing leaders are aware that we all function within a truly global village. This book offers numerous reality-based insights backed by existing scientific evidence that will prove beneficial for mentors as well as mentees at all educational levels, with consideration of the culture of organizations as well as the culture of ethnicity. --Nancy C. Sharts-Hopko, PhD, RN, FAAN Professor and Director, PhD Program Villanova University College of Nursing

Mentoring nurses is an investment in the future of our profession. Mentors and protégés alike will find this book to be a valuable addition to their library, gleaning insight and wisdom from nursing leaders about the value of mentoring, regardless of career stage. A unique and important contribution of this book is its emphasis on the influence of culture in the mentoring relationship. --Judith A. Halstead, PhD, RN, ANEF, FAAN Professor of Nursing Director, Office of Online Education Indiana University

Without a doubt, a must-have book on global mentoring. This book offers easy-to-read content and interpretation that allow the reader to gain an understanding of how valuable mentorship is for both the mentor and mentee. --Jose Alejandro, PhD, MBA, RN-BC, CCM, FACHE Executive Director of Case Management, Steward Health Care System Former President, National Association of Hispanic Nurses Treasurer, Case Management Society of America
