Abstract

Nursing professional development practitioners and nursing leadership identified a need for a transitional mentoring program to assist staff nurses' transition beyond orientation. Mentoring was identified as an effective strategy to promote professional development. The benefits of this year-long transitional mentoring program include an increase in clinical confidence, integration of stress reduction strategies, and reflective practice into daily practice. The transitional mentoring program is a beneficial strategy for enhancing professional development of both mentors and mentees.
