The Nurse Transition program was developed to assist the graduated nurse in making the transition from student to RN. Many new grads have never had the opportunity to apply skills learned in an academic setting to actual practice. The goal of the program is to help new nurses be better prepared when they start with their preceptor and accomplish as many of these skills as possible during the first year of orientation so that they will feel more confident. In addition, this will allow the preceptor to concentrate on helping the new nurse with organization, development of critical thinking skills and NCLEX testing support.
St. Elizabeth provides an in-depth orientation and internship program placing each transitioning nurse with an experienced and knowledgeable preceptor in his/her specialty area.
We provide top notch training programs and workshops for our preceptors, many of whom have been nominated for recognition and awards including:
- Daisy Awards
- Nursing Excellence Awards
- Florence Nightingale Awards
- Greater Cincinnati Health Council Advanced Preceptor Award
Out of State Licenses
Kentucky is a compact state for Registered Nurse licenses from those states recognized. We will happily interview any RN with licensure from another state. Any job offer would be contingent upon appropriate and applicable licensure requirements.
You must hold current certification with a KBN-recognized national certifying organization in order to be issued a permanent ARNP registration in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
