The Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health (IOM, 2010), recommended an increase nursing presence in board service to address healthcare issues and influence change within the healthcare system. Thus, the purpose of the project was to create, design, implement, and evaluate a nurse-to-nurse mentoring program (RNmentor2mentor) for nurses in the state of Michigan aimed at increasing the number of nurses serving on boards. Project results indicated the increase in the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) pre- and post- were not statistically significant, except in the practice of Inspire a Shared Vision. However, all the mean post values in all the five practices of exemplary leadership increased in the post- LPI for the respondents. Results further suggested there was no significant difference in mentor/mentee scores for those participating in between pre- and post- leadership survey at the end of the program. Evaluation of overall program satisfaction indicated the most frequently observed categories were Positive Experience and Good Match. Recommendations include an extended mentoring period of at least 12 months to allow for relationship building and online modules spread over a longer duration of time. The mentoring training process needs to be expanded from a partial day to a full day. The expanded training would provide more in-depth training on use of the modules. The training day should also discuss format, commitment, and exit strategies. The daylong event would provide more opportunity for the mentor and mentee to become more acquainted and promote the building of trust. Keywords: mentoring, mentoring and leadership, mentoring in nursing, mentoring practices, nursing and e-mentoring, and barriers to board service
