In order to explain why a definite number of new nurses leave work soon after they are employed, this paper considers, by examining documents concerned, what are the relationships of new nurses with senior members acting as preceptor, and with those other seniors who are not preceptor. New nurses respect those senior preceptor nurses and are on good terms with the elders by trying to imagine themselves in senior nurses’ position, while elders put themselves in the situation where they themselves were when practicing under their own preceptors in former years. On the other hand, where they work with non-preceptor elder members, several new nurses are on bad terms with seniors, and lack respect, love, or admiration for them, sometimes becoming hostile. It is in this latter case where it is necessary to improve the situation.
