This presentation will highlight an innovation in clinical practice that incorporates a participatory approach, evidence based content development and collaboration among diverse partners. The innovation is a recruitment and retention strategy developing a system wide orientation program for nurses in long term care and home health care. It is recognized that healthy work environments play a major role in recruiting and retaining bright, caring and committed individuals into the nursing profession. A key to a healthy work environment is the nature of orientation to the workplace. Nurses are attracted to organizations that provide a strong orientation program, which helps them to learn about their role in the system in an active, dynamic and supportive way enabling competent practice and clinical excellence. This presentation will describe the development, implementation and evaluation of comprehensive orientation programs for nurses in the long term care and home health care sectors. The program structure and methodology assists employers to offer quality orientation built on sound principles of adult learning, self-assessment, organization and role identity. Unique features of the programs include: a focus on four content domains related to the profession, the organization, the specific role and the clinical specialty; a workbook which provides a creative methodology for effective utilization; and an opportunity to facilitate self-directed learning through an e-based strategy. The orientation program framework and methodology are recognized as best practices in orientation, which through system-wide utilization will enhance quality care and clinical excellence.
