Nurse Educ. Mar-Apr 2009;34(2):88-94. doi: 10.1097/NNE.0b013e3181990eb9.


Few faculty members have received specific orientation, guidance, or training for academic advising. The author describes the advisor-advisee relationship, the responsibilities of both parties, the goals of advising, expectations that students have of their advisors, and tips for advising a student with poor academic performance. Resources for advising are included, as well as recommendations for using technology effectively to strengthen the advising role and create a community with your advisees.
