Nursing Orientation


On the first day of employment, all newly hired staff attends house-wide orientation. Nurses continue orientation for three additional days. Through both lecture and hands-on learning, our nurses become familiar with:

  • Nursing Organization structure and philosophy
  • Shared Governance
  • Patient Safety and Risk Management
  • Infection Control
  • Restraint Usage
  • Equipment and Monitors
  • Computerized Documentation
  • CPR and Mock Code Practice

Following orientation, our unit educators continue with unit specific education. Each nurse is assigned an on-unit preceptor in order to work side by side in delivering patient care. Specialty areas have an extended orientation process including additional classes.

  • Medical/Surgical Fellowship Program
  • Critical Care Fellowship Program
  • Pediatric Fellowship Program
