Clinical Nursing Education

UMCNO’s Clinical Education Department supports the hospital's commitment to exceptional patient care by promoting educational opportunities, training and professional development.

We provide these programs to the UMCNO nursing staff, as well as to nursing professionals in the surrounding communities in a cost-effective, flexible and productive manner.

Our role is to:

  • Assess the educational needs of the nursing staff throughout the organization and the community on a continual basis;
  • Plan, design, implement, promote and evaluate all educational activities for nursing staff using principles of evidence based practice and latest technology based on the needs;
  • Participate, in collaboration with the Human Resources Department, in nurse specific orientation education programs;
  • Collaborate with quality improvement and risk management and all departments to respond to the needs for nurse related educational activities;
  • Identify the placement needs of the nurse training programs and facilitate the placement of groups within the organization; and
  • Enable and monitor the activities of nurse training programs who visit our institution to ensure compliance of organizational policies and procedures.
