Mentorship in nursing

Adrienne Schleisman
I would like to thank Marcia Gruber-Page, MSN, MS, RN, for highlighting the value of mentorships for the profession of nursing (Gruber-Page, 2016). As she emphasized, mentorships in the workplace contribute to the professional success of the mentor and mentee. Another population that is in need of sound guidance during a critical stage of professional development is undergraduate student nurses.

Anticipatory socialization variables (nursing leadership, workplace exposure to the role, and preconceived impression of the role), mentorship by a clinical nurse specialist, and socialization outcomes (self-concept, perceived preparedness for practice, and nursing specialty certification) were explored...

Evidence-based practice (EBP) is essential to high-quality patient care and can contribute to healthcare cost savings, yet nurses and other clinicians at the point of care report barriers to engagement with research and translating it to the clinical setting. Mentorship has been shown to improve nurses' understanding and implementation of EBP. In this article, we describe a mentorship model in a successful program to support point-of-care nurses in conducting small-scale research projects, many of which have led to practice changes and/or cost savings...

To improve value-add work, medical residents implemented and evaluated a quality improvement project of storage room supplies using the lean method. METHODS: Using 5S principle and lean methodology, we designed and implemented a standardised supply cart with physician specific supplies...

Recruiting and training 1 newly hired registered nurse can cost thousands of dollars. With a high percentage of these newly hired nurses leaving their first place of employment within their first year, the financial implications may be enormous. It is imperative that health care facilities invest in recruiting and retention programs that retain high-quality nurses. Mentorship programs in retaining and easing the transition to practice for new graduate nurses, re-entry nurses, and nurses new to a specialty area are critical in nurse retention...

The quality of clinical learning usually reflects the quality of the curriculum structure. The assessment of the clinical settings as learning environment is a significant concern within the contemporary nursing education. The nursing students' satisfaction is considered as an important factor of such assessment, contributing to any potential reforms in order to optimize the learning activities and achievements within clinical settings...

BACKGROUND: Initiating antiretroviral therapy (ART) early during tuberculosis (TB) treatment increases survival; however, implementation is suboptimal. Implementation science studies are needed to identify interventions to address this evidence-to-program gap. OBJECTIVE: The Start TB Patients on ART and Retain on Treatment (START) Study is a mixed-methods, cluster-randomized trial aimed at evaluating the effectiveness, cost-effectiveness, and acceptability of a combination intervention package (CIP) to improve early ART initiation, retention, and TB treatment success among TB/HIV patients in Berea District, Lesotho...

We sought to understand the successes and challenges of EQUIP's mentorship program. From June-September 2014 we performed semi-structured, in-depth interviews with EQUIP mentees who had received mentoring for ≥ 1 year...

AIMS: To determine key factors that stimulate and drive the ongoing interests of leaders in the field of pain to continue to work for change and to explore how they use their own experiences in their teaching. BACKGROUND: The assessment and management of acute and chronic pain remains a challenge and the pain education of pre-licensure/undergraduate health professionals (e.g. nurses, physicians, etc.) continues to be suboptimal. Understanding the motivations of pain leaders may provide insights to facilitate the future development of pain clinicians...

Nurses and midwives who are registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) are required to renew their registration with the NMC. In April 2016, the NMC introduced revalidation, which replaces the requirements for renewal of registration set out in the post-registration education and practice standards. Every registrant should be aware of the revalidation process and requirements. Revalidation is linked to the professional standards for nurses and midwives set out by the NMC and known as The Code. Mentorship is an essential component of The Code; therefore, mentorship practice will assist registrants in meeting some or all of their revalidation requirements...

Interprofessional (IP) care is critical for effective pain management, but evidence is lacking about the best way to teach pain management skills to medical and nursing students using IP strategies. In 2013 and 2014, 307 medical and 169 nursing students participated in an IP case-based pain management workshop. The aims of this study were to determine (1) if students who participate in IP case-based learning groups will have improved pain management skills compared to students who participate in uniprofessional case-based learning groups, and (2) if students mentored by faculty with IP training will have improved pain management skills compared to students who are not mentored by IP-trained faculty...
