Evidence-Based Mentorship Program for New Nursing Managers
In This Episode
Evidence suggests mentorship increases nurse manager competencies, self-efficacy, engagement, and safety outcomes. Yet less than 7% have formal mentorship programs, and many are promoted based on clinical success rather than leadership ability. 60% or more have less than four years’ experience and are leaving positions within two years. Consider the cost of learning through trial & error for a nurse manager vs providing the proper framework, tools, and ongoing support to remain effective.
