“Upper Chesapeake Health is committed to providing quality education to all its team members. With a dedicated resource development staff, current evidence based practices are
incorporated within the education delivery learning process to ensure that excellence is achieved through education. In addition, Upper Chesapeake Health values the importance of continued education by providing a strong education reimbursement program and established affiliations along with an established affiliation with many colleges and universities.

The education department has established a comprehensive new graduate program that is designed to transition recently licensed Registered Nurses into their new roles.
In addition, the education department in conjunction with specialty departments (Operating Room and Emergency Department) has established boot camps to allow transitioning nurses to get didactic and hands on training in those areas while also receiving strong mentorship and coaching by their clinical peers. Also, areas such as Critical Care and Family Birthplace participate in a collegial consortium providing basic education for nurses new to the specialty that allows for quality care for our patients.”
