April 14, 2015

 Dear Fellow Colleagues:


            In an effort to improve the quality and consistency of our Faculty Orientation process, we will soon begin holding regularly scheduled orientations throughout the year for NEWLY hired faculty members.

             These sessions are for those hired by you during the school year and who have been cleared to come to Bayhealth as clinical instructors. These orientation sessions are only for new hires and will NOT replace the annual orientation that currently-affiliated faculty are required to attend annually in August.

             Our next scheduled orientation is Friday, May 15, 2015 from 08:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.  Please be sure to call 302-744-6722 to register.

             All clearance paperwork has to be submitted and cleared by the Director of Education prior to registration.

             Future scheduling is still being worked out, but I hope to have the completed schedule out to you within the next few weeks.


            If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by calling

302-744-6722 or by emailing andrea_mcnatt@bayhealth.org.


Thank you,

Bayhealth Observation & Process
12/29/2014 1:18:34 PM

Hello All

I wanted to reach out to all of you in regards to the clearance process for externship with Bayhealth. With new faces brings new changes. I am trying to streamline the clearance process for all of us that are involved. It seems as though some are having a hard time understanding the requirements; Because of this, we have altered the wording and changed the requirements to be better understood.   If any of you have any questions please feel free to contact myself either by phone (302) 744-6722 or email Andrea_McNatt@bayhealth.org. I am hoping this will be helpful to some if not all of you. You can also locate this information at http://www.bayhealth.org/BayhealthContentPage.aspx?nd=838


Nursing Faculty-Mandatory IV Pump Class
12/22/2014 3:27:40 PM


Dear Nursing Faculty of Bayhealth Affiliated Schools,

Bayhealth’s IV Pump Policy has now been updated to include faculty as an approved party for use of the IV pumps at Bayhealth. However, use of the IV pumps at Bayhealth by faculty is only to occur after a formal training and skills validation have been complete per the policy revisions. In anticipation of the need for training, a survey was recently sent out to all nursing faculty for which we had an email address. Based on the results of this survey, training for faculty will take place in session format during the second week of January at Bayhealth’s Education Department- 208 West Water Street, Dover DE 19901.

Faculty will be required to attend ONE of the following sessions: 


January 8, 2015





January 9, 2015





January 7, 2015





 Please visit www.bayhealth.org/ivpumpclass to register for ONE of the sessions above. Pre-registration is required due to limited seating.

Upon registration, you will be able to access a PowerPoint which details an overview of the various IV pump functionalities. Please review this PowerPoint PRIOR to attending class. For your convenience, we will also be emailing out this PowerPoint following this letter.

Please contact Bayhealth’s Student Coordinator- Andrea McNatt by calling 302-744-6722 or emailing at andrea_mcnatt@bayhealth.org if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Catherine A. Salvato, Ed.D, MSN, RN, NEA-BC
