I am looking for the opinions of others, how long would you expect orientation /training to be at a new facility for an experienced OR nurse?
Our facility allocates 90 days orientation for experienced RNs, but they usually get off much sooner than allocated.
Ooh boy. The most recent nurse we had come to us with OR experience... was before my tenure. However, we did recently have a nurse move from our general OR (meaning pretty much every specialty except cardiac/GYN) to one of the specialty teams. We scheduled her for 4 weeks of orientation. She was solo after the first week.
