We want you to feel like a valuable professional and member of the BAYADA clinical team, so the virtual classroom experience is dynamic and allows for a lot of activities and the opportunity to interact with peers.

Your clinical mentor will support you through each step of your transition to home care. The clinical mentor is a tenured home care nurse who will not only provide a listening ear, but they will also give you timely and clear feedback and present you with various scenarios to help build your decision making and critical thinking skills.

Our program is unique because you will be attending your virtual classroom experiences with nurse residents from all over the country! We want you to feel connected to your peers, so you build a network of support! With this in mind, we designed the virtual classroom experience to include a lot of connection points to get to know and work closely with your peers.

You’ll have many opportunities to practice and apply new skills in your simulation lab experiences and while working in the home with preceptors. This will prepare you for daily skill application.

Our program helps prepare you to recognize a change in client condition and respond to an emergency if one were to occur. Although this isn’t common, we want you to be confident and prepared to handle anything! Through emergency scenarios in the simulation lab and virtual classroom, you’ll have the opportunity to talk through the situation and practice skills to become confident in your ability to respond to an emergency.

You’ll have the opportunity to document the care you provide and receive detailed feedback for strategic improvements. And we provide resources to help you manage time during your shift, because every shift may look a little different! Whether you’re accompanying a client to school or medical appointment, or preparing for therapies in the home, time management is critical to ensuring you can complete the required tasks and stay prepared for any schedule changes.
