  1. Can you give me information on how you do a new grad training to succeed?

    Like how long is the training?

    It is a centralized training ?

    Or it is a decentralized (on unit) training?

    Do you uses preceptor figure?

    Thanks in advance...🤗

    New nurses training program

    Good morning!! I am looking for strategies to change our actual methodology to train our new nursing staff. Actual procedure is 2 week for ICU's nurses and 1 week for regular wards training which cover the essentials of our electronic documentation systems and hospitals protocols. After that they are guided by a preceptor for a period that varies unit to unit with a minimum of 3 weeks. Then no other intervention is done. Can you help me with ideas that are working successfully at yours institutions?
  3. Thanks! I am having trouble with Practice and Performance. Could you post some examples as you did with quality of care? Please!! I agree that a proficiency is a personal work you already did. But your tips are gold and really appreciated

    I am having  problems  getting what i am working for. I feel disappointed, frustrated. I do not pretend to copy it is impossible because you have to proof what you did. I just need a guide to figure out how to write in the correct way to reach the stars.
