MyNRMN Points Structure
MyNRMN uses a points system for its members. Points are a great way to identify active users. The more active you are in the network, the more points you will receive. If you click the top right diamond on your MyNRMN page, the points system displays a chart of the activity you can do to gain points. For example, you can earn points for commenting, liking, connecting, etc. Also, you may not have known, but if you complete the MyMentor program, you receive 100 points! Sounds like it’s a great time to experience culturally aware guided virtual mentoring. Start gaining points today to let people know you are active and want to connect!
Where Should New Users Start
We have seen an increase in new users this fall. We are excited to have you join the MyNRMN platform. I’m sure you are wondering to yourself, where do I start? No worries! Our community of over 20,000 mentors and mentees would love to help you. The Ask A Mentor feature on MyNRMN is a great starting point for new users. Using Ask A Mentor, you can ask questions about MyNRMN, research, grant writing, experiences, etc. It’s a safe space to get answers from other STEM professionals. Also, feel free to join the many virtual groups within MyNRMN. There are groups with different topics catering to different career stages. It’s another excellent way to connect and network with the NRMN community.
