Nurses deserve a purposeful, meaningful orientation. New nurses entering a health care system frequently attend a hospital orientation, followed by a general nursing-based orientation. Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, OH, is one of the country's largest not-for-profit, freestanding pediatric health care networks. The hospital employs over 2,200 nurses. At Nationwide Children's Hospital, the acronym for the nursing orientation is called LAUNCH (Learning And Understanding Nationwide Children's Hospital). LAUNCH, like many other nursing orientations, includes essential information about quality care, safety, infection control, ethics, shared governance, assessments, emergency response, regulatory body information, policies, and procedures.
