Students and professionals alike desperately desire to continue learning and advancing in their education and profession. When considering where to obtain clinical hours or forge ahead in professional growth, other than meeting mandatory requirements and desiring an improved knowledge base, was the mentoring process examined?

Mentorship is a guided process whereby one person shares their knowledge, skills, and experience to assist others in progressing in their education and career.

Mentoring is more than signing off on clinical hours and providing educational tidbits; it is a relationship that motivates, challenges, and empowers a person to identify their own goals for educational and professional development and discover how their goals can be achieved.

Mentorship at Carencia

At Carencia, mentorship is valued and considered a foundational principle in the way clinical education and professional development opportunities are provided. Mentors do more than teach and educate; they challenge and guide a person to be a greater version of themselves. Mentors contribute viewpoints, advice, and information from their own knowledge, experiences, and expertise in order to advance a person’s educational and professional growth.

Carencia’s providers are genuinely interested in helping others succeed, not just learn.

Carencia’s mentors promise to be reliable, honest, and trustworthy. Carencia’s mentors will respectfully challenge and empower an individual in order to promote professional growth and development.

All in all, are educational and professional development just about getting clinical hours signed off or getting a new job?

Carencia’s mentors believe it is about challenging and empowering someone to become the person and professional they always dreamed of being.

This is the power of mentorship.
