SIQUEIRA, Ivana Lucia Correa Pimentel de and KURCGANT, Paulina. Strategy for the qualification of newly hired nurses in internment units for general purposes. Rev. esc. enferm. USP [online]. 2005, vol.39, n.3, pp.251-257. ISSN 0080-6234. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0080-62342005000300002.
The aim of this article is to describe a qualification program for newly hired nurses that has been implemented in internment units in a private hospital in São Paulo. The program was designed in such a way as to reduce training time and make possible the participation of the units' nursing staff. It is divided in three phases. Phase 1 is a technical revision. In Phase 2, with the assistance of a training monitor, the trainees take over the assistance coordination of the unit. In Phase 3, administrative routines and topics are revised. This program has been showing good results regarding the individualization of the training and the participation of nurses.
