Testimonials

We get feedback all the time from our current and returning students, so we throught we share some with you...

San Antonio(TX) Healthcare System Launches Program To Assist Hispanic RN Recruits.

Christus Santa Rosa Healthcare, a three-hospital system in San Antonio, TX, has launched the Internationally Educated Nurse Retraining Program to assist registered nurses trained in other countries in gaining their RN license in Texas. Working initially with RNs trained in Mexico, the system is providing English classes, a refresher course in nursing, and a job shadowing program to acquaint participants with the operations of a U.S. hospital. Advertising in the San Antonio area attracted a pool of interested RNs from Mexico, and the first class of 10 will begin their training in March and will be prepared for their first RN job by summer 2006. (SOURCE: San Antonio Express-News, January 8, 2005)

Have a concern about the nursing practice of some of your nurses?

Don’t get rid of them! Retrain them.Send them to the Corporate Nurse Remediation courses.

The Corporate Nurse Remediation Program provides a proactive internal approach to quality of care and retention. These are state of Texas Board of Nurse Examiner approved remediation courses that educate and remind nurses of their role in Physical Assessment, Documentation, Medication Administration, Nursing Ethics and Nursing Jurisprudence. Optional clinical component is available.

This is a great step to take with minor incidents to show process improvement before or after peer review. The investment you make is far less than what it costs to recruit and orient a new employee. So reinvent the one you have.

Testimonials: " The Nurse Remediation Program was well received by the nurses whom had made errors. They stated that their commitment to our facility increased because we showed we cared about them."
