Their professional development, in turn, can improve the quality of different health care variables, such as nurse and patient satisfaction. This paper seeks to understand coaching and mentoring theory and practices in nursing by providing an annotated bibliography for eight peer-reviewed articles.
The main research question that guided the selection of journal articles is: What are the mentoring and coaching strategies and principles in nursing theory and practice?

I know that even if I only select “peer reviewed journals” as part of my search limitations, I will still get irrelevant results, so I made sure to read the abstracts in choosing my articles. I also added “nursing” as a filter for “titles,” which limited my search to nursing journals. This approach may have excluded other potential multidisciplinary articles that may still be crucial for my research. Nevertheless, I settled on nursing journals to ensure the relationship between the chosen articles and nursing theory and practice. Finally, I did not limit my search to recent articles, because I wanted to see if other previous articles already conducted a review of literature on coaching and mentoring practices and frameworks in nursing.
