Abstract:

Poster presented on: Wednesday, July 24, 2013, Thursday, July 25, 2013

Purpose: The research investigated the effects of student-mentor relations upon thesis completion and their emotions and thoughts during thesis period among those who completed doctorate education in nursing. The aim of the research was to draw attention to the problems caused by student-mentor relations during thesis period.

Methods: The research was conducted with 9 participant who completed doctorate education in nursing at different institutions. Experiences that occurred as the result of student and mentor relation and their reflections upon emotions and thoughts were obtained with qualitative method. Various in-depth individual interviews were performed using semi-structured interview forms. Also, the six participants were asked to write their emotions and thoughts down in order to describe them better. Five themes were explored after the answers were given.

Results: The participants told that they underwent difficulties in the selection of thesis topic, statistical analysis and communicational techniques of the mentors whereas mentors were attentive and careful about the doctorate students’ participation in scientific activities and sparing time for them.

Conclusion: Due to the problems caused by relation between mentors and the students during the thesis period, students become unwilling to finish their thesis. In order not to experience these problems; it is recommended that students decide the thesis topics with mentors, mentors spare enough time for the students for whom they provide mentorship, mentors improve themselves in statistics and mentors encourage the students to join scientific activities.
