Abstract:

Poster presented on: Saturday, November 16, 2013, Sunday, November 17, 2013

Background/Purpose: Although the nursing literature uniformly states that the goal of mentoring is professional development of the protégé the specific activities predicting benefits of nurse mentoring are not clearly defined. This study is an extension of previous studies examining predictors of mentoring benefits (Jakubik, 2007; Jakubik 2008; Jakubik, Eliades, Gavriloff & Weese, 2011) among pediatric staff nurse protégés representing multiple healthcare organizations across 26 states. These previous studies demonstrated that protégé perception of quality was the single best predictor of mentoring benefits. This descriptive, correlational, non-experimental study aims to advance nursing science by examining if mentoring activities predict mentoring benefits among pediatric nurse protégés.

Methods: A convenience sample of 186 pediatric nurses at a Magnet-designated, freestanding, Midwestern pediatric hospital completed an electronic survey containing demographic items and two valid and reliable nursing instruments, the Jakubik Mentoring Activities Scale and Jakubik Mentoring Benefits Questionnaire.

Findings: The research hypothesis that mentoring activities predict mentoring benefits was supported in the study. The correlation between total mentoring activities and total mentoring benefits was .89 (p<0.01). 

Implications: Results of this study provide specific mentoring activities which predict mentoring benefits. Identifying specific activities provides a better understanding of how mentoring relationships can be leveraged within health care organizations to promote the mutual benefits of mentoring. The concept of nurse mentoring and experiences of staff nurse protégés demonstrate Magnet model components of Transformational Leadership; Structural Empowerment; Exemplary Professional Practice; New Knowledge, Innovations, and Improvements; and Empirical Quality Outcomes. Additional research is needed to further explore the impact of being mentored on becoming a mentor.
