Mentoring Workgroup (MWG)

The Mentoring Project is a subgroup of the Career Development Subcommittee (CDS) and is intended to be a centralized resource for officers to reach out and for experienced officers to assist in providing career development information and assist in providing guidance to help officers achieve their career goals.

If you would like to request a mentor, please email Please provide in the email your Name, Rank, Position/Title, Phone Number(s), Agency Email Address, Agency, and the type of mentoring/extent of mentoring you are requesting. Examples of mentoring topics include transitioning into the USPHS, identifying resources available, career promotion/development, reviewing benchmarks, and any other topics identified by the officer they need support on. The intention is for the mentoring relationship to be a short term one, averaging for officers approximately 6 months.

Your information will be filtered to the Mentor Coordinator on call for that month and you will be assigned a mentor who will then contact you to begin your mentoring relationship and to discuss your goals.

Officers seeking to become a mentor should watch for vacancy announcements, which when available, will be posted for application through the N-PAC LISTSERV. You will be instructed at that time to fill out an application form and to turn in a current CV. Officers applying for openings must have supervisory approval, be basic ready, no adverse actions, as well as be in compliance with all policies and procedures. Mentors are selected based on a variety of skill levels and agency experience in order to represent a diverse subset of the nurse category.
