Rodney Johnson is a new nurse at IU Health Methodist Hospital. He cares for patients on the hospital’s advanced cardio pulmonary unit. “When you get out of nursing school and into the field, it’s a lot different. There’s policy and other additional rules and things you have to learn so I felt like after nursing school I still had a lot left to learn,” said Rodney. “One thing I really like about the hospital here is that they have a really cool program called Foundations… where new grads, for the first week or so, go and shadow a nurse educator and they take you on different units of the hospital and kind of give you that one-to-one training before you hit the floor. I gained a lot of experience just from doing that and then when I got to my floor and got with my preceptor, the preceptor was really surprised with all the things I already knew.”
