RN - Sentara - PERIOPERATIVE 101 PROGRAM - May 2017 OR INTERNSHIP
The Perioperative 101 program is administered as an internship program for novice nurses or experienced nurses desiring to switch specialties. The course is designed to integrate didactic classroom lectures with online instruction to produce scaffold learning that can be applied almost daily into the clinical arena. The classroom course is completed in 6 weeks and this includes clinical practicum by week 2.
After the formal classroom period is over, each candidate will be preceptored and mentored by experienced perioperative nurses in each of the surgical specialties for site designated time frames per core specialty.
Clinical rotations are designed to give the Periop 101 Intern exposure to each specialty as they continue to develop their confidence as circulating surgical nurses. The complete internship, in most cases, takes 6 months to complete before the nurse intern is released to practice independently.
If selected into the Periop 101 Internship Program, each Nurse Intern will receive a one year membership to AORN, which is the premier professional nursing organization for Perioperative nurses.
The Registered Nurse develops, implements and evaluates plans of care for specific patient populations. Coordinates and collaborates with multidisciplinary team members to facilitate integrated and comprehensive care.
