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.
STEP ONE: CREDENTIALING CHECKLISTBefore working at a Wheaton facility, the Non-Clinical Credentialing Checklist must be completed by the agency and faxed to the manager or supervisor of the department where contract staff or agency staff will be working, along with all supporting documents.
STEP TWO: FORMSThe following forms must be printed, completed, signed and brought with you the first day of work in order to document your orientation.
Please print New Associate General/Department Orientation Checklist and bring it with you to your first shift on the unit.
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.
Please print, review, and sign the Confidentiality Statement and turn it in to your Medical Staff Office.
STEP FOUR: ON-SITE DEPARTMENT/FACILITY ORIENTATION
STEP THREE: SELF-STUDY
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.
