Mentor a student

Want to learn more or participate in the Connector Program?

You want to stay connected with your alma mater, and we have plenty of ways you can do just that.

Stay in touch

Read about the VCU School of Nursing’s latest news and events on our blog, join our Facebook page and connect with us on LinkedIn.

To make sure we can stay in touch with you, update your alumni contact information, and if you haven’t already, join VCU Alumni, the umbrella organization for MCV Alumni Association of VCU.

Give back

There are many ways to pay it forward, whether it’s giving your time or making a donation, which you can designate to scholarships, research, service or other causes dear to you.

Mentor a student

Give back by working with current nursing students through our Connector Program, which pairs alumni from around the country with students for a one-year mentorship experience.

As alumni, you can offer encouragement and guidance through the challenges and milestones of their educational program. You will act as a support to students in an informal mentoring role by contacting them at least once every two weeks to offer words of encouragement when things are tough or provide a friendly voice celebrating accomplishments and milestones.

You will be given a list of significant dates for the student, such as birthdays, first clinical rotations, first days of exams and more.

Students and alumni can easily connect by email, calls or letters, so even if you don’t reside in the Richmond area, you can still serve as a connector. VCU Alumni, in partnership with the VCU School of Nursing, will provide an orientation program and structure for the relationship. This program requires a one-year commitment, and there is no financial investment on your part
