Information Disclaimer: The information contained in this course was developed by clinical and academic nursing faculty to familiarize students with health and safety topics they may encounter during hospital clinical rotations. This material serves as a baseline for the knowledge you should have to work safely within each hospital. Additional information will be provided by your clinical instructor.
After reviewing this course, there is a post-test you must complete to be in compliance with general hospital orientation guidelines and applicable policies and procedures. Your academic faculty member will instruct you on what to do with the post-test once it is completed.
We look forward to working with you. Good luck, and work safely!
