Our staff has turned over 50% in the last 2 years. We have 6 nurses who have more than 5 years of PICU experience. The other 14 have less than 2. We are considering starting a mentoring program in our unit. Does anyone out there have one in place? If so, how does it work? and how long is it? With budget constraints, we cannot offer additional money to our mentors, but do you have ideas for recognition? I would appreciate feedback. Also, if you have been mentored how do view the experience?
Thanks Lori A. PICU Nurse Educator
