Factors that Affect Mentoring and the Mentor-Protégé Relationship among Asian-American Nurses: An Exploratory Study
Abstract:
Factors that Affect Mentoring and the Mentor-Protégé Relationship among Asian-American Nurses: An Exploratory Study
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Louie, Kem, PhD, RN, CS, FAAN
P.I. Institution Name:William Paterson University
Title:Associate Professor
The following research questions were examined: 1. What are the mentoring experiences of Asian American registered nurses? 2. What are the perceptions of Asian American nurses of the mentoring functions provided by their current or most recent mentor? 3. What are the reasons Asian American nurses do not have a mentor? A convenience sample of 225 Asian American nurses were given the Survey Mentor packet. The Survey Packet included an introduction, consent form, Mentor Interview Survey (developed by the investigator), and Noe’s Mentor Functions Scale (1988). 65 nurses completed the Survey Mentor packets and returned it to the investigator with a response rate of 28%. The findings showed that a majority of nurses currently have or had mentors. In this sample, a majority of the mentors were Asian Americans and were from the same institution. Established mentoring programs assisted nurses in developing mentor-protégé relationships. The project contributed to the nursing field since there is a paucity of research conducted on mentoring among Asian American nurses. The findings showed that mentoring is valued and needed for Asian American nurses for career advancement. In addition, the study revealed that nurses who have mentors also mentor others. In respect to pedagogy, it is important to continue to teach undergraduate and graduate nursing student the importance of the need for mentoring and mentoring others. Faculty is suggested to mentor their students in research, independent study, student clinical practice, etc. and provide role models into the profession.
