Trying to reorganize our preceptor/orientation program for new employees

  1. Our Med/Surg/Peds Unit is trying to reorganize our Preceptor/Orientation program for our new employees. I am having a hard time locating information that will be helpful. We havent had a formal program in the last 4 years and lately I have been noticing that our new employees are not getting adequate training to our facility. I am not sure if the problems lie with the preceptors or the preceptees, or a combination of the both. I would really like to make a structured program for both parties, so that our nurses feel confident, competent, and efficient when they hit the floors solo. If any one has any ideas, web sites or literature that I could use, I would really appreciate it.
