HSHS Nursing Student Orientation – This video is for nursing students who will be doing clinical time (either instructor-led and/or precepted) in any of the HSHS Eastern WI hospitals (St. Vincent, St. Mary’s, St. Clare, and St. Nicholas). Students are seen as an important part of their healthcare team and need to have a good understanding of their values and what it means to be a nurse at their facilities.
Prior to working at a clinical site, the following Orientation Modules must be completed annually by faculty and students. After completing all four modules and you understand the information presented; complete, sign, and submit to your school the “Confidentiality Agreement and Acknowledgement of Orientation Learning Modules” form. Please give the signed and dated form to your school coordinator or faculty member, NOT the health care facility. This form verifies students and faculty completed and understand all four modules, in addition to their abiding by the confidentiality requirements.
