Placement Cycle

Fall/Winter 2014 Planning Cycle:

February 17 – March 7, 2014
Hospitals review, confirm and extend availability through August 31, 2015 for both cohort and preceptor programs. We understand some hospitals will need to modify future availability if census and building plans change. These changes can be done as needed throughout the year.

March 10 – 28, 2014 (Preceptor requests due May 9)
Schools make requests for all courses that start Mid-August 2014 through the end of the Fall or Winter terms (courses that usually end by December 31).

March 31 – April 18, 2014 (Preceptor placement decisions due May 30)
Hospitals review proposed requests and make placement decisions. Hospitals are encouraged to accept long-standing/historic placements and to decline proposals they know they cannot accommodate as quickly as possible, as a courtesy to schools.

About CCPS

The Centralized Clinical Placement System is an internet-based tool designed to help address and improve the growing nursing shortage problem. Underutilization of existing clinical placement sites for nursing students and an inefficient clinical placement system combine to form one of the barriers to increasing the number of qualified nurses.

This system brings together school and clinical agency information in a centralized, online format. This enables schools and clinical agencies to achieve a higher level of operating performance: (i) schools can rapidly match clinical placement opportunities for student cohorts (group of 8-10 students) and (ii) clinical agencies can effectively manage a single schedule (for all participating schools) while increasing the number of students within their agency, which provides direct observation and potential identification of future employees.

Thank you to the Betty Irene Moore Nursing Initiative for their financial support for this project.
