We were able to negotiate with the hospital to avoid a 10 week blackout on summer vacations d/t epic training and go live. Here are the details:

1- training for RNs will take 20-28 hours depending on the department. Highly specialized areas may need more time. ...
2-Training will be in 4 hours blocks and include days, evenings, nights and Saturday times.
3-Training is expected to begin at the end of June, beginning of July.
4- the "playground" will remain open and available throughout the training process and for a time, after the go live date.
5-there will be a blackout from 10/1 through 10
