The Florence Nightingale Mentoring Programme


Professional King’s nurses and midwives all over the world are mentoring King’s nursing and midwifery students and recent graduates to help them succeed in their studies and new careers.

Mentors support students by:

  • sharing their nursing and midwifery industry expertise
  • providing educational advice and guidance
  • reviewing a nursing or midwifery CV
  • preparing recent graduates for interviews
  • coaching students and recent graduates through their career goals and aspirations
  • offering work placements and internship opportunities if available

The partnerships are fun and informal and the results can make a huge difference! Members are also invited to exclusive nursing and midwifery events throughout the year to meet with other mentors and mentees. Register onto King's Connect to join the programme and find your mentor and mentee!
