I am looking for information on nursing departmental orientations - most hospital orientations are pretty much cookie cutter from my experience but I am given the responsibility of putting together a departmental program at the facility I have worked at for 6 months as a staff nurse. I believe that there should be a different orientation period and format for new grads vs experienced grads but none between contract vs agency vs staff. Please knock holes in this thinking or support it!!
Tell me what you liked best about your departmental orientation and what you thought was a real "YUCK"! I am particularly interested in Med-Surg but want input from everyone no matter the assignment.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
