Department: “Share Your Story” Challenge

Send us up to 1,000 words on how being a mentor or mentee shaped your practice.



Most professionals can identify a mentor whose guidance and influence left a lasting impact on their careers. Is there a mentor who had a significant effect on your practice? Or was there a time when you mentored someone and changed the course of his or her career? Would you like the opportunity to be published and win free registration to a national conference for nurse leaders? If so, Nursing Management wants to hear from you! For a chance to win a free registration to Nursing Management Congress2020 in Las Vegas, Nev., next September, send us an essay of up to 1,000 words.

Your essay will be a personal account that shares one of two stories:

  • how a mentor along your professional journey transformed or guided your career as a nurse leader and/or how you approach the job each day
  • a time when you mentored someone and it made a difference in his or her career.

Please email your submission to Senior Managing Editor Coleen Stern at Submissions will be accepted through December 31. Along with free admission to Congress2020, the winning submission will be featured in a future issue of Nursing Management. Do you have an inspirational story about mentorship to share? Tell us about it!
