An Intercultural Peer-Mentoring Program for Prelicensure Nursing Students.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Background

Nursing students from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds may require additional support for academic success.

Method

A CALD peer-mentoring program was offered in an Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program. The Logic Model framework was used to plan the program.

Results

Mentors and mentees expressed satisfaction and derived benefits from the mentoring program. They were retained in the ABSN program and all but one had on-time academic progression.

Conclusion

The CALD peer-mentoring program was cost effective and successful. A challenge to be addressed is the need to overcome scheduling conflicts for mentors and mentees to meet. [J Nurs Educ. 2021;60(6):343-345.] .
