"Quality of mentoring is the single most important predictor of
mentoring benefits." (p160, #1, References & Resources)
"New nurses were looking
for mentors who were “good practitioners” who could assist them in decision making, critical thinking, evidence-based
practice, and holistic nursing care, as well as support them in the ongoing development of their nursing careers." (p.121,

"As aspiring, new, and experienced nurses interact, support,
and learn from one another, new energy emerges for the practice of nursing at our hospital and for the profession of nursing."
