Cary, NC – November 1, 2017 – Relias, a trusted partner in online analytics, assessments and learning in the healthcare industry, announced today the launch of Relias Onboarding, the only adaptive learning platform for nurse onboarding. Designed to meet the unique and specific training needs of nurses, from new graduates to experienced professionals entering a new practice area, Relias Onboarding quickly and effectively prepares hospital nurses by personalizing education in the top four hospital specialty areas: medical/surgical, intensive care, labor & delivery, and the emergency room.
Through assessments, a personalized learning plan, and easy to use reports, Relias Onboarding helps hospitals:
1) Reduce the time and cost of onboarding.
2) Improve clinical outcomes by ensuring nurses are ready for independent practice
3) Increase nurse and preceptor satisfaction
All Relias Onboarding courses are ANCC accredited, so nurses earn continuing education credit as they learn.
“Most onboarding education is a one-size-fits-all approach that doesn’t meet the individual needs of the nurse, can decrease engagement, and waste resources training on areas that a nurse may already be proficient in,” explained Ben Johnson, Chief Product Officer at Relias. “Relias Onboarding assesses a nurse’s proficiency and then educates a nurse only on what he/she needs to know, which saves hospitals time and resources.”
All Relias Onboarding courses are hosted online and delivered in easy-to-absorb two to eight minute segments. The process begins with an assessment that evaluates a nurse’s readiness to practice based on knowledge and clinical scenarios. Once the assessment is complete, Relias Onboarding prescribes a learning path that trains nurses on what they need to know to be ready for safe and quality practice.
Through the assessment and personalized learning path, nurse leadership easily identifies individual nurse strengths and learning gaps as hospitals increase the speed to safe, independent nurse practice.
