Abstract
Mentoring promotes success throughout the careers of nurse educators. This pilot study discusses findings from a survey administered at the 18th Annual Nurse Educator Conference in the Rockies. Facilitators of and barriers to mentoring were identified by participants and clustered into themes by researchers. The findings are useful to associate degree nursing programs because issues surrounding the nurse educator shortage are addressed. Strategies to develop effective mentoring programs to assist in recruiting and retaining qualified nurse educators are discussed.
