Associates in Transition
Associates In Transition (AIT) is a collaborative effort to address workforce
challenges at Atlantic General Hospital through the development of a hospital-wide
mentoring program for both clinical and non-clinical associates.
Specifically, this mentoring program seeks to address two areas:
- Retention of new associates
- Creation of an associate network
The mentoring program provides an additional opportunity to enhance the
personal and intellectual development of associates in transition, whether
they are new associates, associates transferring from one department to
another or those returning to Atlantic General Hospital. Current associates
will serve as peer mentors and provide personalized support.
Associates in transition not only receive personal guidance from mentors,
but also benefit from professional development opportunities. The program
is committed to assisting AIT’s and providing them support during
their first year on the job.
Associates will receive encouragement from mentors in their pursuit of
excellence at Atlantic General Hospital. Mentors gain satisfaction from
making a personal investment in the future of Atlantic General Hospital.
Each mentor will become an advocate, a role model, a friend. The mentor
will serve as a catalyst for personal and intellectual growth. Mentors
will work with their associates in transition to encourage career success
and professional advancement.
