Your First Steps

Everything about our New Teammate process is designed to help make your onboarding and orientation easier and more manageable.

We will have lots of valuable information for you during Orientation. Yet there is plenty that you can do too, prior to Orientation, to ensure you are well-prepared and ready to get the most out of your first days with us.

Please reference the Your First Steps: Pre-Orientation Checklist and the Your Next Steps: Week 1 Tasks in addition to the resources below.



Preparation for Health Assessment

Your health assessment will consist of the following:

  • Drug screen
  • Confirmation of your immunization history
    • Bring your complete immunization records
    • Please also bring documentation of a flu vaccine for this flu season, a documented medical exemption, or a documented religious exemption. If flu documentation is not presented at the health assessment a free flu vaccine will be offered. Applicants must be compliant with the Atrium Health flu vaccine policy in order to begin employment
    • Complete the Health History form and bring to assessment
  • Tuberculosis / TB skin test
    • If you have ever had a positive Tuberculosis / TB skin test, bring a record of that positive skin test and of a recent chest X-ray
    • If you have any records of any TB skin tests completed in the last year, bring those records
  • Medical statement review (if applicable)
    • If you are under care for a chronic or serious medical problem or have any work restrictions, bring a medical clearance from your physician.
