I saw a job posting for newly grads nursing recruitment at one of the large hospital near where I live.
They seem to be hiring quite a few in several departments.
All of them indicates
"6 weeks of preceptorship program"
They all appear to be what we call "floor nursing".
Isn't 6 weeks a bit too short for someone fresh out of a school?
Don't most jobs, outside of nursing, give you average 3 months of probation?
I had a chance to speak to one of the nurse who happens to work there.
"In the past, when I started, they'd put the newly grad nurse with an experienced nurse until he/she gets comfortable with the new job. Nowadays, due to short staffing, the hospital just make you start working immediately on your own."
What are most typical length of a preceptorship program in your region?
