RN - Sentara - PERIOPERATIVE 101 PROGRAM - July 2018 OR INTERNSHIP
Welcome to Sentara!
The start date for this program is July 23, 2018
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.
This position is eligible (for qualified candidates) for a $5000 Retention Bonus and requires a 2 year commitment.
