The researcher interviewed Clinical Nurse Educators in acute care settings to determine their role in shaping a mentoring culture. The findings indicated a flourishing use of informal mentorship between Clinical Nurse Educators, staff nurses, and fellow educator colleagues. From the data, a theoretical model was developed to explain the Clinical Nurse Educator’s role of supporting a mentoring culture. Five themes of perceived nursing environment, work functions, mentorship beliefs, relationships, and organizational values were found to influence the Clinical Nurses Educator’s ability to support mentorship. Also uncovered were the personal and professional mechanisms of informal mentorship that Clinical Nurse Educators used to support an organizational culture of mentorship on their units.
