Introduction Mentoring in the workplace and in educational institutions has often been an accepted practice. In institutions of higher education the mentoring of junior faculty has possessed a lower level of priority then that of mentoring students. However, recent interest and formal studies have identified mentoring as a developing priority in academe. Purpose of The Study The purpose of the study determined mentoring relationships between nursing faculty at baccalaureate institutions of higher education. This study utilized a questionairre developed by Sands, Parsons, and Duane which identifed quanitative and descriptive information regarding the amount of mentoring and career support among faculty in baccalaureate programs of nursing. Conceptual Framework The conceptual framework of this study encompasses two distinct areas. The first area is that of mentoring. The goal of the research was to determine mentoring practices implemented by nursing faculty to assist junior faculty in their academic development in baccalaureate nursing programs. The second area of amplification of the study's conceptual framework was to determine the tenets of teaching, scholarship, and service and the role they play in the development of careers in higher education. Sample The sample was drawn from baccalaureate schools of nursing which are accredited by the NLN or AACN. The sample was stratified by rank and tenure status in order that information was collected on demographic data, mentoring experiences, career supports, career impediments, and the need for a mentoring program. To adequately answer the research questions descriptive statistical techniques were employed. Interval items in the questionairre were gathered and means and standard deviations were reported. For nominal scale responses frequencies and percentages were completed to tabulate responses. To assess faculty discrepancies between ideal versus actual experiences in mentoring a series of paired t-tests were conducted at the .05 level.
