AORN Member Mentor Program

Creating Connections with Purpose

AORN’s Member Mentor Program is a members-only benefit designed to initiate career-long connections to help nurture professional and personal development—and success—for every participant. Those who are new to the profession bring renewed energy to the specialty while members with rich knowledge in clinical practice and career opportunities can guide the next generation of OR nurses.

We recommend that program participants connect with only one person at a time in order to get the most out of the experience and partnership.

If you are not an AORN member and would like to sign up, please join today.

  • Orientation Webinars for both mentors and mentees
  • Additional mentorship resources (videos, articles, and discussion prompts)
  • LinkedIn profile links
  • More frequent check-ins from AORN to encourage successful connections
