I am investigating a complete revamp of the orientation process for our field staff. Tell me what elements you think are critical to orientation for a home care nurse (Medicare intermittent visits), whether you're an old pro or a greenhorn. I have my own ideas, but I can't come up with it all on my own. I need fresh ideas from people in other situations who can think outside the box--or simply within a different box. Forget the usual how to operate the computer system and tell me what kind of training/education is needed in the field. Give me your "orientation wishlist," both from the point of view of the new hire and the preceptor, please.
