Are preceptors for orientation of new nurses effective?
The intent of this secondary analysis of a large data set was to provide empirical data on the benefits of preceptorship programs for orientation.
Do nurses with preceptors have more satisfaction, social integration, and professionalism; less turnover; and better performance?
The subjects were newly employed nurses, 177 were assigned to preceptors, and 98 did not have preceptors.
The subjects completed questionnaires at three time periods: during the first few weeks on the job and at 6 and 12 months after employment.
Data were analyzed by student's t test and chi square analysis.
On average, nurses with preceptors had less education and experience and were more involved with family.
