Mentorship Key to Utilizing Best Practices

The Future of Nursing report highlighted the importance of continuing education and mentorship for nurses, so we were pleased to learn about a Transition to Practice study being coordinated through the National Council of State Board of Nursing. The study is aimed at identifying best practices for closing the gap for new nursing graduates as they transition from nursing school to providing care to patients in a complex technical environment.  Newly graduated nurses in the program will work with a mentor during their first six months of employment. The mentors and mentees will both complete training modules and report ongoing progress.
