Abstract:
The experience of participating in a formal nursing mentoring program in a Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit Background/ Objective: In 2001, the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) put forth a framework for Establishing and Sustaining a Healthy Work Environment. In all six areas of focus, mentorship is critical to supporting the development of new staff to appropriately participate in sustaining a healthy work environment. The purpose of this exploratory study will be to describe the experiences of nurses participating in a formal mentoring program based in the cardiac intensive care unit, from the perspective of both the mentee and mentor within the framework of a healthy work environment. Methods: Phenomenological qualitative methods will be used to describe the experiences of cardiac intensive care unit nurses who participate in a formal mentoring program in a large pediatric tertiary care institution through the use of focus groups over a period of one year. All data will be transcribed verbatim and will be described and interpreted thematically. Results/ Conclusions: Preliminary data will be available to present at meeting. Data from these focus groups will serve as groundwork to examine current nurse experiences and identify further measures to support professional and personal growth as well as promoting and sustaining a healthy work environment.
