Orientation & Training

New Employee Orientation (NEO)

All new employees attend a 2 day New Employee Orientation (NEO) starting on the day of hire. All new employees learn about the mission, vision, values, and cultural beliefs of the organization. The focus is to provide a foundation of knowledge needed to be successful in all roles at the organization.

NEO continues for new clinical employees for 4 additional days. The focus in these sessions is to provide information on key policies, procedures, techniques, and equipment used most frequently. The organization has a high-fidelity simulation lab used in clinical NEO to promote a safe learning environment with no risk to patients or employees. Clinical NEO uses a blended learning theory and incorporates didactic learning, interactive skills sessions, patient care scenarios, and simulation.

New clinical employees also engage in a 3 day Cardiac Rhythms Course through the AACN with supplementation from our Critical Care Nurse Educators. In addition, new Critical Care clinical nurses participate in AACN’s Critical Care Course and new Medical-Surgical clinical nurses participate in NICHE’s Gerontology Resource Nurse Course.

Early Graduate Nurse Onboarding (EGNO)

Early Graduate Nurse Onboarding (EGNO) is an innovative onboarding strategy developed by the clinical nurse educators in 2018. The large number of graduate nurses onboarded at the organization each year called for an inventive process. As the Graduate Nurses interview and accept formal offers of employment, each are invited to participate in EGNO. EGNO is scheduled over 6 weeks in June and July each summer. The Graduate Nurse commits to the organization, chooses an EGNO date, and begins the onboarding process prior to attaining the New York State Licensure Exam. The EGNO process is a symbiotic relationship gives the Graduate Nurse foundation for practicing at the organization and additional practical information prior to sitting for the licensure exam. The organization has experienced a 100% pass rate with those participating in EGNO.
