Abstract

© 2015 by the Oncology Nursing Society. New oncology nurses face multiple stressors related to the predicted nursing shortage, demanding work responsibilities, and growing complexity of cancer care. The confluence of these stressors often causes new nurses to leave their profession. The loss of new nurses leads to staffing, economic, and safety concerns, which have a significant impact on the quality of oncology nursing care. At a Glance • Oncology nurses are valuable resources in the healthcare system. • A promising source of support identified by new oncology nurses is the use of a nurse educator coach to guide them on how to integrate self-care strategies into daily practice. • The findings from the current study can be used to develop innovative interventions to achieve optimal job satisfaction, retention rates, and professional experience for new oncology nurses.
