Placement Cycle

Spring/Summer 2015 Planning Cycle:

August 18 – September 5, 2014
Hospitals review, confirm and extend availability through December 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.

September 8 – 26, 2014 (Preceptor requests due November 7)
Schools make requests for all courses that start January 2015 through the end of the spring/summer terms (courses that usually end by August 31).

September 29 – October 17, 2014 (Preceptor placement decisions due December 12)
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.
