Career Coaching

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

ACN is proud to offer all Undergraduate members the opportunity to receive a minimum of two one-hour Career Coaching sessions with a vibrant Member or Fellow. 

Career Coaching allows undergraduate students to draw on the wealth of knowledge of dynamic, high calibre nurses and discuss topics including:

  • Career pathways
  • Interview skills
  • Resume writing
  • Overcoming fears and limiting beliefs
  • Setting career goals
  • Dealing with conflict
  • Time management
  • Emotional resilience and self-care.

But don't just take it from us, here's what Undergraduate members that have already received coaching have to say:

"Being in contact with a Career Coach gave me valuable advice for my nursing graduate application; selection criteria and interview. It was great to get realistic information from another nurse, who has gone through a similar process. My mentor really took the time to answer my questions, prepare me for the interviews, to give me confidence when talking to future health care employers."

"I have found that I have made improvements with the way I approach clinical placements, resume writing and research. My Career Coach is not only a role model or mentor but a friend."

"I chose to participate in the Career Coaching with ACN as I am a newly enrolled nursing student that wants to make the most of my new career. I have found having a mentor a great experience and a huge help with my personal goals."

"I'm very thankful for my Career Coaching experience, it was most useful to have direct access to a career-driven individual that held a high profile position in the nursing arena."

"I have been matched with the most amazing mentor, we have a great connection and I can always ask her questions and get a rational level headed answer."
