Experienced critical care nurses have the expertise to respond quickly and appropriately in emergency situations. New graduate nurses, however, typically lack this expertise and may benefit from mentoring as they learn to manage rapidly deteriorating patients. The purpose of this article is to describe the lessons learned during implementation of an Expert Nurse Mentor Program. Nurse educators may benefit from this information as they strive to establish and maintain mentoring programs.
