Your Orientation
Your orientation to Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare will consist of self-study materials completed prior to your arrival and a department/facility orientation on your first day of work.

Please Note: We encourage you to use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox browsers on a desktop or laptop computer as some of these orientation modules are not supported by Internet Explorer and mobile devices.
    Before working at a Wheaton facility, the Clinical Credentialing Checklist must be completed by the agency and faxed to the manager or supervisor of the department where contract or agency staff will be working, along with all supporting documents.
    The following forms must be printed, completed, signed and brought with you the first day of work in order to document your orientation.

    New Associate Orientation Checklist
    Please print New Associate General/Department Orientation Checklist and bring it with you to your first shift on the unit.

    Agency Staff Orientation Checklist

    Please print a copy of the Agency Staff Orientation Checklist. Review all items listed under Orientation Materials and check them off on the list. As a clinical employee, you must complete both the top and bottom portions of this check list. (Clinical employees are employees who provide patient care.) This list must be signed, dated and turned in to the manager or supervisor on the first day you work. At that time the site-based orientation items will be completed and signed off.

    Confidentiality Statement
    Please print, review, and sign the Confidentiality Statement and turn it in to your Medical Staff Office.

    The documents listed under Orientation Materials cover key information that you need to know before your first day at a Wheaton facility. Our goals are that you will feel comfortable and knowledgeable in the environment and that you will be able to meet the same high standards of behavior and patient care that are expected of our own associates. The topics correspond to items listed on the Orientation Checklist. Please review each document carefully before checking it off on the Orientation Checklist.

    Orientation Materials

    After completing the EPIC online education, you will have an assessment on the unit during your first shift. If you need further EPIC training, please discuss with the manager of the Staffing Office.


    After completing the self-study portions of the online orientation, you may be on the unit for your first shift. Arrive a half hour early. At that time, you will meet unit staff, other interdisciplinary associates, tour the unit, and receive a department specific orientation. For each new unit you are on, you will follow the same process. On your orientation to the unit, you may receive additional clinical competencies specific to that patient care population or area. These will need to be completed in addition to the Orientation Checklist.

    For areas EXCEPT All Saints, the supervisor or charge nurse will fax the completed competencies to WSST Staffing Office at 414-465-3490.
    For All Saints, the competencies will be submitted to the Central Staffing Office. Follow directions from Float Pool Manager.
