Nursing Orientation

We recognize the invaluable benefits of supporting our newly hired nurses to reach their full potential. Once hired, all of our nurses complete the Performance Based Development System (PBDS) assessment. This helps each nurse to identify areas where they need to increase their knowledge or skills and provides us with a clear beginning for your individualized orientation program.

  • After completion of the hospital nursing orientation, an individualized action plan is developed based upon findings from your PBDS assessment. This, along with the unit specific orientation, is the basis for your individual orientation program.

  • Each nurse is assigned a Clinical Coach to facilitate a smooth transition. The Clinical Coach is a fellow nurse on their unit, so they are available to offer support and information even after completion of the program.

  • Unit-based Clinical Educators assist the nurse and their Clinical Coach in planning, reviewing and assessing the process of the individual orientation program.
