Users log on to the Oracle Administrative System using a BlazerID and strong password, but what a user is able to access within Oracle is based on their Responsibilities. "Responsibility" is the term used to identify the sets of web pages, menu options, forms, data, and reports that users can use within the system. Some Responsibilities are set up automatically for the users based on certain criteria, and other Responsibilities must be set up with the Access Control Form (ACF).

In addition to Access Responsibilities, employees may be assigned certain Administrative Roles to view/update data and receive notifications and reports.

Blazer ID and Strong Password

Anyone needing access to Oracle must have their own BlazerID and a strong password. After the ACT hire document has reached a complete status, an overnight process adds the individual to the UAB Electronic Campus Directory, which is used to validate requests for BlazerIDs.

If the individual does not have a BlazerID, they can easily obtain one by accessing the BlazerID Central website.

After entering the BlazerID and Password, users must accept the "Sign on Agreement" to gain access to the system. The Sign on Agreement references the Oracle Access Agreements for Employees.

Welcome from UAB Chief Nursing Officer & Senior Associate VP

I want to welcome you to UAB Hospital. Whether this is your first employment or you are an experienced professional, our goal is to help you transition into your new role at UAB. 

To achieve this goal, we strive to individualize your orientation, nurses and patient care technicians will have approximately one week of orientation. During this time, you will learn important UAB policies and procedures and review skills and nursing care. We use a combination of structured learning activities such as the classroom setting, online learning, and simulation.

Once general orientation is complete, you will continue orientation on your unit. In addition, for new nursing graduates, we have a Nurse Residency program, which consists of quarterly sessions designed to help you transition into professional nursing practice. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. For any other questions, you may contact the Center for Nursing Excellence at 205-996-5713. 

Again, on behalf of UAB Nursing Services, I welcome you.

  1. Hold your ID badge over the scanner to clock.
  2. A good punch will give you a green light and you will hear a single “beep” from the clock, and your name will be displayed.
