Abstract:

The concept of mentoring and its relationship to job satisfaction has been thoroughly discussed in the literature. The purpose of this research project was to determine if past mentoring experiences affect job satisfaction scores of nurses in management positions. The results indicated that mentored nurses currently in management positions do have statistically significant, higher levels of job satisfaction than non-mentored nurses. The results also found that the career functions of mentoring such as visibility, coaching, protection, challenging assignments and sponsorship play an even more important role in job satisfaction then do psychosocial functions such as role modeling, acceptance, counseling and friendship.
