This collaborative study between Nova Southeastern University and shared Baptist Health South Florida faculty was conducted to investigate the influence of peer mentoring on the reduction of anxiety, and the increase in self confidence and organizational skills in the simulation lab setting. There were statistically significant gains on item scores from pre to post test on 4 of the 5 items. Additionally, mentors showed greater gains on 4 of the 5 items. The items measuring anxiety showed significant decreases with the mentor group (F=3.22, p=.041 and η = .087). Conclusion. Study suggests mentoring positively influences the reduction of anxiety.
