SEEKOE, Eunice. A model for mentoring newly-appointed nurse educators in nursing education institutions in South Africa. Curationis [online]. 2014, vol.37, n.1, pp. 1-8. ISSN 0379-8577.

BACKGROUND: South Africa transformed higher education through the enactment of the Higher Education Act (No. 101 of 1997). The researcher identified the need to develop a model for the mentoring of newly-appointed nurse educators in nursing education institutions in South Africa. OBJECTIVES: To develop and describe the model for mentoring newly-appointed nurse educators in nursing education institutions in South Africa. METHOD: A qualitative and theory-generating design was used (following empirical findings regarding needs analysis) in order to develop the model. The conceptualisation of the framework focused on the context, content, process and the theoretical domains that influenced the model. Ideas from different theories were borrowed from and integrated with the literature and deductive and inductive strategies were applied. RESULTS: The structure of the model is multidimensional and complex in nature (macro, meso and micro) based on the philosophy of reflective practice, competency-based practice and critical learning theories. The assumptions are in relation to stakeholders, context, mentoring, outcome, process and dynamic. The stakeholders are the mentor and mentee within an interactive participatory relationship. The mentoring takes place within the process with a sequence of activities such as relationship building, development, engagement, reflective process and assessment. Capacity building and empowerment are outcomes of mentoring driven by motivation. CONCLUSION: The implication for nurse managers is that the model can be used to develop mentoring programmes for newly-appointed nurse educators.
