Abstract

The purpose of this quality improvement project was to pilot and test the acceptability of implementing an eight-week voluntary evidence-based mentorship program for new graduate nurses within a medical-surgical unit. This project was guided by the Iowa Model of Evidence-Based Practice and an adaptation of the Academy of Medical Surgical Nurses Mentoring Program. Nurse leaders may want to consider creative ways to incentivize mentees and involve them in tailoring mentoring programs during the final phases of the orientation program.
