Abstract

Supportive measures, including mentorship, are essential for novice nurses in relation to job satisfaction and retention rates. A novice nurse support group was designed and implemented over 12 months to determine job satisfaction and retention outcomes. A pre/post survey design using the Casey-Fink Nurse Retention Survey provided descriptive data. Findings demonstrated overall job satisfaction; all participants were retained within the organization and suggested continuation of the support group.
