Three months into being a clinical educator, I am curious as to how other hospitals do nursing orientation. Where I work we have 2 days of general orientation and then nurses also have 3 days of clinical orientation. After that, the nurses get 3-4 weeks unit orientation. Is this the norm or what other way is orientation done? The 3 days of clinical orientation is going over some basic skills and how certain procedures are done at the hospital. I am thinking of doing a research study on this and any replies will help me start. Thanks for any help!
