Introduction: The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of Mentorship program on stressors and self-confidence of nursing students in the clinical environment of Ramsar Imam Sajjad Hospital.
Methods: This study is a quasi-experimental design. 60 second semester nursing students from Ramsar Fatimah Zahra Nursing Faculty were selected using Census sampling method, and were randomly assigned into control (n = 30) and experimental groups (n = 30). For the experimental group, for every 3 to 4 second semester students, a sixth- semester nursing student as a mentor assumed the role of guidance and support. For data gathering, it was used of the persian version of clinical experience Assessment form (Kack & Kleehamme, 1990) and self-confidence Questionnaires (Montaltor, 2001). The data was analyzed using SPSS version 18 with statistical tests. The significant level was P < 0.05.
Results: The mean scores of stressors in the clinical settings decreased in the experimental group (P = 0.001).after intervention and did not change in the control group (P = 0.43). The mean score of confidence level of the test group increased more than control. The analysis by Independent T-test showed a significant difference between the difference between the mean scores of self-esteem between the two groups (P = 0.001).
Conclusions: It is suggested that clinical education planners consider modern and cost-effectiveness methods as a complementary educational method to improve clinical education in educational planning.
