During this partnership between Phi Mu Chapter of Sigma and The Student Nurse Project, I’d like to share with everyone President Tigges’ Call to Action: Connect, Collaborate and Catalyse. These link so beautifully with some of the NHS Horizons 30-day challenges and with this partnership in which we plan to host a series of tweet chats, to explore and discuss the wider implications of these topics!
For the third tweet-chat, we’ll be tweeting to catalyse and promoting mentorship and reverse-mentorship in nursing. The chat is called ‘Transformation through Mentorship,’ and we will be thinking about our own mentoring partnerships, and dream mentors. It is apt for us to discuss transformation at the end of the 30-day challenges because it allows us to question next steps and how we take things forward. Mentorship allows the participants to gain new insights, opinions, perspectives and both develop professionally and personally. It is a key player in catalysing transformation, opening doors and creating opportunities.
