Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston New Graduate Nurse Program

Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston New Graduate Nurse Program, this eight hour program is designed to facilitate new graduate RN transition into the professional work environment. A focus is the nurse’s progression toward that of an Entry Level Clinician (Patient Care Services Clinical Recognition Program). Class discussions are structured around an exploration of evidence in the literature regarding new graduate nurses. Discussion themes include: the patient/family interface, quality and safety, professionalism, reflective practice, narrative culture, mentoring, and ethics. The program also creates an atmosphere for faculty guided debriefing with peers/colleagues.

New graduate RN’s are encouraged to attend several weeks AFTER formal orientation with a preceptor is complete.

PCS Orientation

Building upon the information presented in New Employee Orientation (NEO), the Patient Care Services (PCS) orientation is the gateway to becoming an active member in the patient-family centered care delivery model.

PCS orientation lays a foundation from which each employee is encouraged to perform to their fullest potential. Being built on a spirit of inquiry, PCS is a culture, which focuses on providing excellence in care and service to the patient and family. During PCS Orientation the new employee is introduced to the nursing provider team, which includes the professional registered nurse, unlicensed assistive personnel and support service staff. Each of the clinical nursing units are governed by a Nursing Director who is supported by a Clinical Nurse Specialist and many other members who provide direct care or support services to the patient and family.

New employees are introduced to Patient Care Services, clinical resources and Departments and services supporting clinical care.

PCS is where the collaborative relationship of a multidisciplinary team begins.
