Hello!

I recently got a job in the ED at a level 1 trauma center in the Bronx. It's part of NYC Health + Hospitals and there is a newly issued "NYC wide residency" in place. It isn't a year but it is 16 weeks. I start orientation this week and it seems there is a lot of confusion about how long we will actually be in the classroom for before heading to the unit.

Anyone have any experience with NYC Health + Hospitals orientation?

How is your orientation going?

I also got a position in a NYC Health + Hospital ED in the bronx. I was told full classroom orientation would be 2 weeks and orientation would be 20 weeks, but it wasn't really explained further. She did say during the entirety of this I would only go up to ESI III, and once I get my TNCC I'd manage ESI 1 & II. Additionally, she said I'd be enrolled in the New grad residency program (which starts in January I think) which lasts for a year and ends with a capstone. It's a 1 month meeting for the year and the residency is combined with all the NYC Health + Hospitals where they bus you to the hospital that month's meeting is being held at. I start mid November, so I'd love some insight on this.

Which facility are you in? Lincoln, Jacobi and North Central are all in the Bronx. For us it was 3 weeks of class room and 5 days of system wide/hosp specific formal days. There were tests and skill competencies. 

I'm on the unit now. For the first 2 weeks its 8h days and 2 weeks of 12h days then I go to shift (which is over night 12h for me). Total unit orientation for us is 14 weeks

We have to get all of our skills signed off before we can be released to shift.

There is a nurse residency program for all new grads/people with less than 1yr exp and its mandatory. They will bus you and it counts as a working day

Also yes we have to get the TNCC and BCLS/ACLS/PALS but I already have them
