New Employee Orientation
Welcome to Gundersen Health System.
We are excited to have you join our team and begin a long and meaningful career with us as we work to enrich every life we touch, including yours.
You should have received an email detailing your orientation schedule.
All employees will complete New Employee Orientation, which covers general information about the organization and regulatory policies and procedures that help the organization meet mandatory requirements.
Patient Care Orientation
This interdisciplinary educational experience utilizes active learning principles to educate direct patient care staff about important regulatory requirements. By learning side-by-side with colleagues from across the organization, participants learn how to incorporate evidence-based best practices into the care of our patients.
Centralized Nursing Orientation
Designed specifically for registered nurses and licensed practical nurses, this interactive orientation event introduces nurses to our Nursing Professional Framework, unit/department specific onboarding, and professional socialization opportunities. Organizational and regulatory requirements are also completed.
Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Orientation
Designed specifically for Certified Nursing Assistants, this orientation event uses active learning principles to introduce nursing assistants to basic nursing cares, equipment and processes needed to care for patients in an acute care setting.
EPIC is Gundersen Health System's electronic medical record. If EPIC competency is required for your position you will be enrolled in a role specific EPIC training course. Each course features an interactive training session designed to highlight EPIC functionality. Unit and department specific EPIC workflows will be introduced and reinforced throughout your orientation.
New Employee Orientation is held at the Integrated Center for Education on Gundersen's La Crosse Campus, at 1827 Sims Place, La Crosse.
