Critical care nursing orientation in the rural community hospital

Allison Squires, Sherri McGinnis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

In this article, we describe how our hospital overcame staffing and funding shortages to create a successful, collaborative orientation program for its critical care nurses.
