Welcome to the NSW Director of Nursing and Midwifery Mentoring Program

This program is designed to give you the opportunity to connect with other leaders and form mutually beneficial mentorships. For mentees – this is an opportunity to learn, develop, and shape your own career through the real-world experience of an executive mentor. For mentors – this is an opportunity to contribute to the professional development of NSW Health senior leaders, further develop your leadership skills and expand your professional networks.

*To apply as a Mentee you must be currently performing in a DoNM role in NSW Health. To apply as a Mentor you must be an executive leader with a proven track record of achievment in your industry.

“Colleagues are a wonderful thing – but mentors, that’s where the real work gets done.” — Junot Diaz
