***Disclosure***
This application is to develop a pool of candidates from inpatient or outpatient nursing for upcoming cohorts of the RITE program. Selection is solely driven by the project needs and NOT on individual merit. For example, if a RITE project requests a bedside nurse from B2 to be part of their project; we will access the available pool of applicants and identify the applications of nurses who work on B2. There may not be a project for expertise/unit in every cohort.
