Class Dates and Requirements for New Faculty/Instructor Orientation
All new instructors are required to attend the New Faculty Orientation, even if they are an employee of Nationwide Children's. The class is held several times a year on a monthly basis before the beginning of each term.
New instructors are also required to have NCH Inpatient EPIC documentation training and Medication Barcoding training. If the new instructor has not had this training or is not an employee of Nationwide Children's, they must attend the 4-hour EPIC documentation class. Please go to the Electronic Medical Record section to register for the EPIC classes.
All Instructors are required to orient to the unit they are assigned to before independently supervising students on that unit. Arrangements for unit orientation should be made through each unit's manager or designee.
Once New Faculty Orientation, Inpatient EPIC/Barcoding training and Unit Orientation is complete and all documentation is on file in the Professional Development Department, the Instructor is ready to independently supervise students. The only further training required is orientation to a new unit if the Instructor's assignment changes.
