What are the requirements for these programs?

Graduate nurses who have graduated from an accredited nursing program and are simply waiting to take their boards are eligible for this program. Participants will work with an RN preceptor in an orientation role, learn the ins and outs of their assigned unit and provide direct patient care.

What specific work will participants be able to do and will there be any restrictions?

Graduate nurses will perform RN activities under the direction, supervision and delegation of a Registered Nurse. They will collaborate with their assigned RN for the assessment, diagnosis, planning, implementation and evaluation of nursing practice and patient care. Participants can assist with the handling of medication but will not be able to administer medications until their RN license is secured.

How is this program different from programs other hospitals are offering?
