Teammates

Welcome to Atrium Health! 

As our community navigates the impact of COVID-19, your role in caring for patients is more important than ever. Our goal is to give you the tools and the knowledge you need to safely begin your practice as part of the Nursing Team at Atrium Health. Just as important, we want to protect your health, which is why we are transitioning to a new format effective March 23, 2020. Please review the following carefully:

  • Portions of the Nurse Orientation and the Electronic Health Record training programs have been placed into a virtual format which you may complete from home. If you do not have access to a computer and internet, you may complete e-learning at the Center for Learning & Development. We ask that you complete this content in its entirety during your first week of employment. 
  • Nurse Orientation also includes validations for nurses in designated practice settings that will occur in-person at the Center for Learning & Development during your first week. Please understand that your schedule may vary depending on the number of participants in orientation.

We appreciate your patience and welcome your feedback as we implement this new model, which will be in effect until our Infection Prevention Team and Emergency Operations Center advise that COVID-19 precautions are no longer needed.  

SCHEDULE: Your schedule the first week will vary by your practice setting. Review the schedule by clicking the appropriate setting in the table below. We are grateful for your patience and understanding as we work to provide training in the safest possible environment.

During weeks with large numbers of teammates joining Atrium Health, please note that your schedule may vary from the information below. Your Talent Acquisition Consultants will provide you with detailed schedule information prior to your start date.
