[Leadership session research presentation] The mission of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) Minority Nurse Mentorship and Professional Enhancement program is to identify, retain, and enhance the professional development of minority nurses at the bedside and in leadership roles within the UPMC Health System through the use of the five C?s - candor, compromise, confidence, complexity, and champion, to effectively nurture meaningful professional relationships. For years, UPMC, which employs over 7,000 nurses, has recognized the value of diversity and has made great strides in the recruitment of minority nurses. Now, retention and the leadership development of minority nurses have come into focus. In the face of the nursing shortage and an aging nurse workforce, attention on the recruitment, retention, and leadership development of minority nurses can improve the nursing shortage and advance the transformation of cultural diversity in healthcare settings. Cultural diversity is vital to the future of the nursing profession. A multicultural nursing workforce must reflect the ethnic and cultural changes evidenced by the current and future patient populations. The focus of the UPMC Minority Nurse Mentorship and Professional Enhancement program is to address the disproportionate number of minority nurses in the nursing profession. Our program objectives include to: Increase the recruitment of new minority nurses; Lengthen the tenure of the minority nurse already at UPMC; Showcase leadership development opportunities for minority nurses; and Assist with the recruitment, retention, and graduation of minority students in the schools of nursing at UPMC. The results of this program should demonstrate increase minority nurse retention, reduce cost to the organization, increase number of minority nurse leaders and improve cultural competency in the care of a growing diverse patient population. The principles of the Mentoring program can be applied to the new and experienced nurses, the results of which impacts the nursing shortage.
