One of the requirements of the MAGNET designation is running a nurse mentoring program at scale, which usually comes with it's own challenges.

Building a mentoring program is essential for career progress and nurse retention. There are 9 key steps to launching a mentoring program including mentor training, matching, and guiding relationships.

However, such a task can become challenging at scale. Especially when HR in healthcare organizations is so busy and get's pulled into so many tasks with the COVID-19 pandemic.


If you're wondering where to start, it's likely that you'll start with checking:

  1. Do we have existing mentoring programs we run?
  2. How can we scale them to check the box for the MAGNET designation?


HR professionals in medical organizations are super busy to run such programs at scale so the first step could be checking if the current HR system (such as Workday) offers mentoring solutions.


It is likely they do and that could be a start to exploring if you can scale your mentoring program however we see our healthcare clients not being able to scale their programs this way. In this case, a solution such as Qooper will integrate with Workday and scale mentoring programs to achieve MAGNET designation without requiring workload from HR or busy healthcare professionals.


Who joins mentoring programs in healthcare organizations?

The most common groups are staff, physicians and nurses - which is a requirement of the MAGNET designation.
