8/17 Orientation

Posted by kelseyanna95 @kelseyanna95, Aug 10, 2020

Hello – has anyone heard anything yet about the orientation on August 17th? Is it fully virtual? Thank you 🙂

The orientation I have on the 17th starts at 8a so I'm not sure if that's the same one then. Where is your orientation at? The 8a one is at the Mayo building.

Who did you get your email from with that information?

I got the email from the operations manager of urology.

As it seems, orientation is different depending on which group you’re a part of i.e. which unit you’ll be on. Orientation group A has an in person orientation 7am – 11:30am on Monday, the 17th at the Gonda building. This is the Department of Nursing orientation. In addition there is an online Mayo Clinic orientation that you have 48 hours to complete starting Monday. I received an abundance of emails – cross referenced them – and came up with this schedule. And I believe orientation group B starts at noon on Monday. But shoot a message to your HR rep to clear up any confusion. Hope this helps 🙂

I’m a bit confused, I got an email that general orientation is online, and nursing orientation starts at 12, but I haven’t heard anything from my supervisor yet. Is the first in person orientation at 12? Thanks!

So my schedule says that the Department of Nursing meeting starts at 12pm. My specific unit's orientation starts earlier in the day (8am) though. Your's may be different?

Okay! So it must just be in four hour increments. Thank you so much!

Yeah it very well may be that we'll have a general orientation for the first several hours together then split into our own respective departments afterwards. At least from all the comments it seems to be the case.
