Abstract

In order to recruit and retain registered nurses during an era of nursing shortages, staff development educators must provide orientation programs that are highly satisfactory. This article describes a program that effectively links the perspectives of nurse managers, nursing staff, and nurse educators. Orientation evaluation questionnaires completed by orientees and staff nurses who served as their buddies show that new employees believe this program meets their learning needs. Such satisfied nurses can recruit their colleagues to employment.
