21st INRC [Research Presentation] Purpose: To determine how mentorship and self-efficacy influences internationally educated nurses (IENs) participation in professional development and Career advancement compared to United States Educated Nurses. IENs constitute a growing proportion of the U.S. nursing workforce and contribute significantly to the nurse's role in meeting the healthcare needs of the American public. However, evidence on career advancement of nurses' show that internationally educated nurses' progress relatively slowly through the career ladder compared to indigenous counterparts such as U.S. educated nurses (UENs). Advancement of the nursing profession, globalization, and safe-quality, healthcare underscore the need for all nurses to keep their skills and competencies current. Methods: The study will utilize a mixed methodology using a descriptive-correlation survey design and content analysis of open ended questions to explore the association among mentorship, self efficacy, professional development, and career advancement of both IENs and UENs. A power analysis revealed that 114 subjects will be required for this study. Results: Data collection is presently being conducted and expected to last 60 days. Conclusion: It is imperative that all nurses engage in ongoing professional development and career advancement activities as nurses have been identified as the frontline of patient defense in healthcare in many countries including the U.S. Internationally educated nurses will continue to be part of indigenous countries workforce. It is imperative that all nurses acquire the skills necessary to provide safe quality healthcare regardless of migration or indigenous status.
