dc.description.abstract New graduate nurses have a role transition period from the educational setting to the practice setting. Facing the challenges of a new professional role without a monitored orientation program leads to job dissatisfaction. Orientation programs that have mentors assigned to new graduate nurses promote positive role socialization and may increase the job satisfaction of the new graduate nurse. The purpose of this study is to examine differences in job satisfaction in two groups of new graduate nurses, one group that has a traditional orientation program and the other group that has a traditional orientation with a mentor socialization program. Benner's Novice to Expert Model is the theoretical framework for this study.The sample will consist of 60 new graduate nurses in orientation at Parkview hospital in Fort Wayne, Indiana, who have given consent to participate in the study. Participation in the study is strictly voluntary. All participants will remain anonymous and confidentiality will be maintained throughout the study. The McCloskey/Mueller Satisfaction Scale (MMSS) will be used to measure the job satisfaction of the new graduate nurse. The study is significant because if job satisfaction can be obtained with new graduate nurses it might help to decrease the nursing shortage. Results of the study can be used to help hospitals see that orientation programs with mentorship will help with job satisfaction and retention. en_US
