No hospital role is more integral to the quality movement than nursing. Consequently, nurse bedside readiness is much more critical than it was even a few years ago. New nurses, whether they are fresh out of college or experienced clinicians, need to be fully competent and engaged in all patient-care processes soon after they are hired to ensure hospitals continue to meet quality and patient experience objectives.
One of the best ways a hospital can prepare new nurses for the rigors of their job is by offering an advanced onboarding process that is anchored by a nurse preceptorship program. In fact, hospitals that offer well-structured preceptorships that include highly trained preceptors, not only quickly transition nurses towards clinical competency but also help them become sharpened, critical thinkers.
