This course is designed for students who have already obtained their Registered Nurse license but have not been able to obtain employment. This course is a collaboration between Rio Hondo College and local Medical Centers, that will provide a structured clinical practice environment and learning opportunities that support a deeper understanding of the healthcare environment in which Registered Nurses work. The course will be structured with 5 hours of theory at Rio Hondo College and 235 hours of clinical/simulation course work. The theory course work will review professionalism, interview skills and knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to improve the quality and safety of the healthcare system. The clinical and simulation experience will provide the new graduate the opportunity to increase competence with clinical skills, critical thinking and professional role assimilation. Unlike other CWE courses, this course may only be taken once for 4 units of credit.
