Picture this: A team of Nursing Professional Development Educators having to orient 50-100 new hire professional clinicians and support staff on a weekly basis, over 3-4, 7.5-hour days, with predominantly lecture-based or excessively long eLearning content.
This was my struggle… and along the way, I discovered solutions to dramatically improve the learning process for both new and experienced staff.
Imagine having engaged learners in your professional orientations!
Imagine increased content retention and active learning!
Imagine your staff taking ownership of their learning!
Get ready for a career-changing educational event!

Movement is taking place now to facilitate education, as opposed to spoon feeding our staff. You will have opportunities to use the showcased tech tools to see just how easy and user friendly these free and low-cost platforms can be.
