Professional Growth & Development
From student nurses to experienced professionals, Mercy Gilbert Medical Center is committed to offering training and guidance that enables all our employees to develop rewarding careers.
This begins with our Student Nurse Extern Program, which will provide a range of on-site experiences to accredited nursing externs. During this exciting and educational program, student nurses who meet qualifying standards can expect to learn a range of skills, critical to making a smooth transition into the industry.
We also offer a New Graduate Registered Nurse (R.N.) Orientation, during which each graduate is assigned to an experienced R.N. who has been formally prepared for the preceptor relationship. The program will begin with a one week combination of classroom/clinical skills labs, where the graduate will be introduced to Mercy Gilbert Medical Center nursing policies, procedures, equipment, guidelines for care, and professional issues.
The next six to 12 weeks are critical 12-hour shifts in which the new team member will be involved in direct patient care and skill enhancement with the preceptor. Graduates will work up to competent, independent care with patient assignments by the time orientation is complete.
R.N. Clinical Ladder Program
Designed by our nursing staff, our R.N. Clinical Ladder Program encourages and recognizes professional development with opportunities for increased compensation independent of our annual merit program.
