Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: With a generation of nurse educators planning, or already executing, their retirements, today's academic nursing leaders are faced with the daunting task of managing the resultant staff turnover. Nursing faculty shortages are becoming more commonplace and competition for recruiting and retaining the next generation of educators has intensified. Research has suggested that mentorship programs can assist in recruitment and retention efforts and that they are an effective way to ease the strain, and promote critical knowledge transfer, during this "changing of the guard". How valuable is a formal mentorship program in recruiting and retaining faculty and what impact does this kind of programming have on an organization's mentorship culture? This presentation will highlight formal mentorship program elements developed by the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology Nursing Division and include a discussion of this new program's initial impact on staffing, faculty development, and the creation of an academic mentorship culture.
