Project Description

Beliefs about Mentors and Mentoring

Project Abstract

The purpose of this study is to describe the impact of mentoring and mentors on training satisfaction for certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs). Nurse anesthesia programs create a foundation for direct patient care delivery, offering guidelines and interventions designed to promote quality care. The rite of passage to the world of anesthesia practice involves applying the theoretical and clinical instruction learned throughout the program of study.
Effective mentoring has the potential to impart a lasting positive impression that can serve to motivate and encourage newly graduated nurse anesthetists as they progress through their careers. Comparisons of non-mentored and mentored individuals yield consistent results. Mentored individuals report greater career satisfaction (Ragins, Cotton and Miller, 2000), career commitment (Greene & Puetzer, 2002) and career mobility (Mauleon & Ekman, 2002).
This study will lend insight into mentoring as it impacts newly graduated nurse anesthetists as related to career satisfaction and professional commitment.
