How UnityPoint Health Uses Mentoring to Support New Nurses

About the Webconference

Many organizations assign new graduates a preceptor and “peer buddy” for their first few months on the job. While these are important roles, they don’t provide enough support to help new hires fully acclimate to the demands of their job. Establishing a mentorship program can help new graduates better adjust and stay at your organization. Making new graduates feel secure and welcome can help decrease the turnover rate among this group.

Learn how UnityPoint Health created a unit-based mentor program at their organization and were able to help new graduates manage their workload and reduce turnover.

What You'll Learn:

  • How to select individuals to serve as mentors
  • How you can implement a mentorship program at your organization
  • How to scope and clarify the responsibility of mentors
