It Takes a Village

It takes a village to provide excellent care to patients.  During week four, Residents hear from a variety of disciplines who work side-by-side with nursing every day.  From Pharmacy and Imaging Services, to Security and Housekeeping, Residents get the inside scoop on how best to work with each facet of the interdisciplinary team.

During the first year of nursing, it’s easy for Residents to focus only on the nursing aspect of patient care delivery.  “It Takes a Village” Day helps to broaden their perspective and gain an appreciation for the bigger picture.

“This class was extremely helpful!  It is important to consider the contributions of the interdisciplinary team, and how to assist one another to provide optimal patient care.  It gave me a great appreciation for the other areas of the hospital”
