A Transparent Tracking System for Competency-Based Orientation: One Children's Hospital Transport Unit Experience.
J Nurses Prof Dev
When nurses are hired for positions that require lengthy, highly specialized in-house orientation, their failure to complete orientation on time can lead to staffing shortages. In this article, we report the use of a transparent tracking system to monitor nurses' progress through a competency-based orientation program. By monitoring progress and detecting lapses, immediate remediation can be offered to those who need it, and staffing shortages thereby are avoided.
