A residency program consisting of one year of mentoring, simulation training, and online education was developed to promote the retention of new nurses, to develop their expertise, and to share clinical knowledge. Likert scale evaluations and qualitative interviews were used to evaluate the effectiveness of the program. Attendance, Likert scale evaluations, and qualitative responses from participating nurses and their mentors all reinforced that nurses primarily value one-on-one mentoring relationships but also are able to learn from high-tech knowledge sharing such as simulation training and online education.
