On-boarding nurses

Gundersen uses a cohort model when on-boarding graduate nurses in the acute hospital setting. Cohort models were developed in response to some basic facts about human nature and learning - i.e. people learn better in groups. They provide an interactive and dynamic setting for new nurses to develop relationships and attain knowledge and skills in a safe, nurturing environment.
