Globally, shortage of nurses is one of the predicaments of the health agencies today. Developing countries are strongly affected by this scarcity leading to dearth of nursing leadership. Considering the existing situation in Pakistan, nursing leadership development has become a vital responsibility of the health institutions, to achieve its mission. In recent years, a large number of institutions have adopted mentoring program as a strategy for leadership development. Literature reveals that mentoring programs are effective in academic institutions for young faculty members to develop attitudes and attributes necessary to become productive scholars and educators. A mentoring program was initiated in one of the private University of Pakistan, where a group of newly employed faculty members were paired with selected mentors for a period of one year. This paper will focus on the results of the mentoring program and determine its effectiveness. The data will be collected by administering a questionnaire to two groups; one to the mentees and other to those faculty members who did not receive mentoring. The most recent group of faculty members will be selected to limit recall bias. The information will be collected on time taken to adjust in intra and interdepartmental activities, perception and satisfaction as effective educators and leaders who could assume the responsibilities of the institution in future. Other independent variables includes; sense of authority and decision making capacities, formal development of carrier plan, understanding of vision of the institution, and comfort in scholarly and research activities. Quantitative and qualitative analysis of the data will be done. The results of this project will suggest continuing or modifying the mentoring program. The results will also be disseminated and shared with other health institutions of Pakistan and other developing countries to replicate this mentoring program.
