Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Helen Ewing, DHSc, MN, RN (A. T. Still University)
Description: This book endorses the need to increase mentorship in nursing to change the healthcare environment to be more inspiring and empowering for nurses. As nurses are often referred to as the backbone of the healthcare system, it is only prudent to ensure that they are content in their positions; this book provides theories and strategies to promote mentorship in nursing in support of this workplace satisfaction.
Purpose: The purpose is to stimulate more nurses to mentor each other. This book does this through providing tools to help change the culture of nursing to promote a more positive and empowered environment. This empowerment is accomplished through discussing the theories of mentorship in nursing in addition to including effective methods to mentor others and empower the mentee. Topics that are addressed in the book include: how to encourage others, the roles of mentors and mentees, and how mentorship can be implemented in all types of healthcare organizations.
Audience: This book would be valuable to all nurses as nurses are constantly in mentorship roles and often are the mentees. As the profession of nursing requires continual growth in knowledge, skills, and critical thinking, mentoring must always be a part of nursing and knowing how best to promote successful mentor-mentee relationships and outcomes is warranted.
Features: This is an easy read and the book is full of useful information. Much of the material is presented in a bulleted format and tables which highlight the main points and enhances the capture of information. Each chapter has a conclusion that summarizes the main concepts.
Assessment: With the increasing shortage of nurses worldwide, finding ways to increase morale and keep nurses in nursing is paramount. Mentoring has been supported as an effective way to enhance nurses' interactions and satisfaction with their work environment. This book effectively illustrates methods to increase and promote mentorship at all levels of nursing. It has come at a critical time in nursing and provides practical suggestions, through mentorship, to inspire the nursing workforce.
