Problem: The stability of enrollment in graduate nursing programs has become increasingly important to schools of nursing as graduate programs may be contributing to the financial soundness of entire schools of nursing. While student enrollment in the project's nursing program has been stable, presenting graduate students requesting admission to the program are somewhat different than in previous years. For example, a majority of admitted full-time students work 40-plus hours per week in addition to being single mothers with a multitude of roles. Embarking upon this project will have a direct effect on faculties' ability to understand students' needs thus contributing to their academic functioning, growth and development, and retention in programs. Theoretical Frameworks: Lazarus' and Folkman's Stress and Coping Theory, the Bridge's Transition Model and Erickson's Developmental Model are being used to guide the study. Purpose: This project will systematically explore the phenomenon of role strain as it relates to the mentoring needs perceived by graduate nursing students. Methods: A triangulated study in which a convenience sample of 25 first-year graduate nursing students are being asked to complete Van Meter's Role Strain Questionnaire (RSQ) and Lyons' School-Related Life Disruption Questionnaire (SRLDQ). Subsequently, students who complete the aforementioned questionnaires will participate in separate focus group sessions with emphasis on identifying their perceived mentoring needs. Results: Qualitative and quantitative data will be analyzed using appropriate techniques to identify mentoring needs of students and to isolate patterns that match the phenomena of role strain and school perceived as a life disruption . Practice Implications: Findings will be used as a basis to build an effective mentoring program for graduate nursing students.
