Colorado Public Health Nursing Orientation Toolkit

The Colorado Public Health Nursing Orientation Toolkit is a handbook of recommendations and resources for use by nurses and public health administrators. This handbook supports nurses and administrators in developing a comprehensive orientation specific to the setting/agency in which the nurse works. The Toolkit is prepared in a “pick list” format where the nurse and employer can together determine the depth and breadth of the orientation needed. Resources under each major topic of orientation are listed along with live links to training, training material, readings, resources, and more that nurses and public health administrators can use to design their own custom orientation. This guide was developed as a 2022 Colorado Public Health Association Nursing Section project.
