If you have ever taken a job in a hospital facility as a clinical staff nurse, then you most likely endured a clinical orientation. Did you love it?!! The really great orientations are imprinted on our psyches and embedded in our hearts. …The really bad ones are enough to make anyone quit the practice of nursing. Even non-nurses. I became a mentor to 2 wanna-be neonatal nurses, this post is dedicated to them.
Since those really are the only two choices – a Good O or a Bad O –
the Muse, RN is happy to start the following list in service to:
our future co-workers
…whose hearts deserve our warmest welcomes & best instruction
our Preceptors & Nurse Leaders
…who have always had the ability to make it so.
