ENA Mentoring Program

The Mentoring Program reflects ENA's commitment to your professional development. This member-exclusive online tool helps you find and connect with others in emergency nursing. Your mentor or mentee can be right down the street or on the other side of the world. 

Mentoring relationships will vary based on the mentee's goals and desired outcomes. 

You can enroll in the program as a mentor or mentee and find your match in three simple steps:


Get started by completing your ENA CONNECT profile. Make sure your contact information is up to date, add a recent professional profile picture, expand on your bio and update your education and job history. Having a complete and accurate profile is crucial to the success of selection and matching. Profile complete? Return back to this page and move on to the next step: Enroll.


    Are you looking to be a mentor or mentee? Perhaps both? Sign up:

    Make selections for each of the program demographics to set your preferences. Demographics include: topics, venue, specialties, career stage and start/end date. Please note that some fields are required for enrollment. The more information you provide, the easier it will be to make the best match.
    For assistance with enrolling, refer to the Mentoring Program User Guide.


    Use the ENA Mentor Directory to find mentors and/or mentees with whom you can connect online, by phone or in person.

    Start by selecting the topic(s) that interest you.

    Then select preferences for the mentoring venue, career stage, specialties, name and location.

    Do one search or multiple searches. If you're unsure of the search criteria, select "Search for ALL of the selected values." The ENA CONNECT Mentor Directory will do the work for you and populate the results. 

    Next click on the member's name that you're interested in establishing a mentor/mentee connection with. The link will bring you to their profile page. If you think it's a desired match, look under the profile image for a Mentor/Mentee Request button, which when clicked will allow you to request a connection. If it's not a desired match, you can simply select the back button to return to your previous search results.

    Once you have submitted your request, a notification will be sent to the recipient to accept/decline the request. To view the status of your requests, visit My Mentoring Relationships section within your profile under the Connections tab.
