Nurse Graduate Orientation
Graduate nurses often begin on Med/Surg units. They receive an extensive unit-specific orientation that is individually tailored – and only complete – when the nurse, preceptor, and nurse manager feel the nurse is ready. This provides the foundation new nurses will need to expand their capabilities in the future.
Nurses with less than 6 months of experience can expect an orientation of 10 weeks*. During orientation, graduate nurses will work with their preceptors, educators, and managers to identify areas where they need additional practice and develop a set of goals ensuring ongoing success in their first year and beyond.
