Classroom sessions are designed to enhance clinical knowledge while emphasizing critical thinking and the nursing care process at Phoenix Children's Hospital. The mentor program matches each student to a mentor who is a senior staff member. Each student participates in facilitated debriefing and self-care sessions providing them an opportunity to express strong feelings and emotions about their experiences as a new graduate RN. Looping takes place between departments so that students understand what happens to patients along the care continuum during hospitalization.
