Patient Privacy Information.
Security is now requiring nursing instructors of group clinicals and precepted students to call or email and make arrangements for IDs. This needs to be done a week in advance. The only set hours will be from 8 a.m - 12 p.m Wednesdays, all other times will have to be arranged.

Synergy Model of Care Delivery
Synergy is a model of care delivery, in which eight patient needs are matched with eight clinician competencies, working towards a common goal of safe passage through the experience of care.
Safe passage requires the nurse to know the patient/family and the patient/family to know their nurse.
When patient needs and nurse competencies are in synergy, optimal patient outcomes are more likely to occur.
Find more information regarding synergy on the Faculty Orientation Page.
Student Information Sheet A new form for student's requesting a senior capstone experience (preceptorship) at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin has been created. The form was developed after receiving feedback from preceptors stating that they would like more information up front on any student doing a one-on-one experience. Please complete form and send it to Diane Dooley.
