Abstract

 The purpose of the present study was to develop a scale to assess how senior nurses establish relationships desired by new graduate nurses. Items were developed on the basis of previous studies. The scale was then completed by senior nurses (N=844) . Factor analysis yielded the following 4 factors: behavior to receive new graduate nurses, creating relationship and the atmosphere, controlling feelings, and appreciation. A number of senior nurses could perform these behaviors. The influence of experience as a preceptor and training for preceptorship differed by factor of the scale. There was no correlation between a senior nurse's age and any factor. These results suggest that the reason why senior nurses can establish relationships desired by new graduate nurses involves the behaviors they can perform regardless of their attributes.
