Orientation and Training
It will begin with 2 days of training in a simulation center environment and 1 day of EPIC training with our Nurse Educators. These are prescheduled classes from 8 am to 4:30 pm. These in person classes will typically fall on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday week 1 of employment. Because these classes are prescheduled, you must attend all full days, and we cannot reschedule any of the required dates if you cannot attend. Attendance is compensated, as it is required for compliance. You will have 6-9 additional shifts of orientation on the unit working alongside a preceptor. These shifts will be coordinated between you and the Nurse Educator. Once complete, you would then assume your core schedule for the unit.
In addition, a Nurse Technician is often floated to other departments of higher need based with similar training. If they are outside of a unit with their similar training (like a med-surg NT going to ICU or HDVCH) they would typically just be acting as a safety attendant. But all typical units they are floated to would have very similar expectations and training.
