Citrus Valley Health Partners Mentoring and Professional Development Program (MAP)
MAP is a 12-week program designed to create a welcoming, enriching and educational environment for new or recent RN graduates hired by CVHP. The program provides nurses with cultural competency tools, encourages and supports nurses in continuing their professional development, and provides resources that include in-class support groups, educational lectures on clinical and hospital-specific policies and procedures, and a senior mentor/educator to turn to with questions and for support.
PAC/LAC acts as the evaluator for the program and utilizes various assessment tools to determine the effectiveness of the program in meeting its objectives. By collecting and analyzing the data, we are able to present CVHP executive staff with a comprehensive written report. We have also worked with CVHP in organizing and facilitating focus groups for recent MAP graduates. Through identifying the objectives of the focus group, questions are designed to extract meaningful feedback.
