Creating a Staged Approach to Critical and Acute Care Orientation

Simplifying learning pathways improves competencies and retention of new nurses.

New nurses hired to work in the critical and acute care units at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago were consistently overwhelmed by the training required.

This case study explores how the education team enhanced the learning experience, reduced training time, and improved retention to ensure safe and quality care could be delivered to patients with varying acuity levels.
