Abstract

The research question addressed in this capstone is does the use of learning preference improve the orientation process for newly hired Registered Nurses? The motivating factor for this capstone was employees and managers reporting difficulty retaining all the information required in orientation. Individuation was suggested as a way to improve the efficiency and the efficacy of nursing orientation by tailoring the bedside orientation to the new employee's preferred learning preferences. Use of Power Point_ technology is often overused and the effectiveness was questionable with orientation material. Key influence for this capstone was reducing orientation time when faced with training large numbers of replacement nursing staff when faced with a strike. A financial incentive to reduce orientation time continues to be desired by leaders.
