Staff orientation plays a vital role in maintaining professional practice. An effective staff orientation for new nurses is crucial for promoting competency in providing care and maintaining optimal patient outcomes. A well-planned orientation programme developed within a specific framework addresses the gaps in general and area-specific knowledge and competency, and includes specific guidelines for assessment and evaluation during and at the completion of programme. The orientation should meet the learning needs of nurses, enabling them to increase their work productivity and improve quality in care. This article is a brief discussion on how a staff orientation programme was redesigned for cancer care at ambulatory settings in Canada.
