Abstract [en]

Background

The society and health care units are increasing the demands on nurses.  Newly employed nurses   are expected to be able to work from the first day of employment independently.

Aim

That the newly employed nurses in communities within the County of Dalarna, receive support enabling them to feel safe in their professional role and ensure patient safety.

The scope of the project

The Mentor Model (MM) is based on the fact that the municipalities in Dalarna County (n = 15) appoints a Headmentor (HM).  The HM is responsible for appointing a mentor (M) for all newly employed nurses and has a supportive function for all mentors. The mentors (M) should have professional experience and are responsible for the newly employed nurses under a period of one year. In order for the M to provide support i.e. time for reflection with the HM and newly employed nurse sufficient, time must be allocated, i.e. two weeks.

The (M) should be available to answer necessary, and networking with other mentors in Dalarna.

Interviews with HM, M and newly employed in the municipalities showed positive gains with appointing an MM. The positive effects were: patient safety, the nurses felt more confident and the HM and M had opportunity to develop professionally.
