Central Nursing Orientation (CNO)



Welcome to Central Nursing Orientation!
Our goal in CNO is to engage newly hired nurses and assistive
personnel in understanding his/her job responsibilities, basic
regulatory/institutional requirements, resources, and standards
of nursing practice. We emphasize consistency with the principles
for delivering nursing care at Michigan Medicine for the benefit
of the nursing community and the patients/families we serve.
