This study aimed to determine if the implementation of an internet based nurse mentoring group program would aid in the retention of registered nurses in the home health care industry. As the Vice President of Operations for a home health care organization, the researcher both implemented and facilitated an internet based group mentoring program for registered nurses working in home health. The study sample included 47 registered nurses. Forty-two registered nurses were in the control group and five registered nurses were in the experimental group. All sample participants worked in home health care, either in Illinois or Indiana. Quantitative results indicated that there were no significant findings related to retaining registered nurses who participated in the internet based group mentoring program. Qualitative results revealed that the internet based group mentoring program was a positive experience and a forum needed to support nurses in home health care industry.
