Orientation Day

What Is Orientation and Who Is It For?

There are many pressing questions people have before starting a new job. Cooper's orientation program is designed to answer these questions and set you up for success before you start work. Check your personal email for a message from Cooper that will contain your Monday start date and Orientation Day

All Cooper team members attend the general Day 1 Orientation – this includes Patient Care Services (PCS) team members who have direct patient care responsibilities and all non-clinical team members.

Physicians, residents, fellows, students, contractors, and RN agency staff often have an alternative Day 1 orientation plan. Speak with your HR Recruiter, your manager, a department leader, or a program/academic coordinator to gather information regarding your onboarding plan and orientation tasks that are specific to your group.

What to Expect on Day 1

Day 1 Orientation is presented in two parts which you'll attend 100% remotely and not onsite at Cooper. A link to access Cooper’s virtual meeting platform, Webex, will be included in an email invitation that you’ll receive from Cooper on the Friday before your Monday start date.

Part 1 - AM: Promptly at 8:30 a.m. on your start date, you will attend a live-class conducted through Webex. Before Day 1, prepare for this event by ensuring you have a PC or mobile device with internet access. Webex is a video platform so you will be seen on camera. You can test drive the Webex experience before Orientation day by using  Webex's test site.

Part 2 - PM: Following the orientation class, you’ll spend the afternoon of Day 1 completing a set of four mandatory online courses that are accessed through the Cooper Learning Network (CLN). These courses must be complete by 11:59 p.m. on your start date. 

You will receive instructions on how to access and complete the necessary assignments during Part 1 of Orientation. You can also review these instructions in advance.
