Due to our current commitment to multiple nursing school programs, we regret that we are unable to accommodate preceptor placement requests by individual students unless you are a UMHS employee. Further, we are unable to accommodate any shadow or observational experience requests.
If you are a UMHS employee in need of a clinical placement, please be aware that all placements within UMHS must be coordinated through the Clinical Placement Office in Professional Development and Education. Due to the limited availability of preceptors; it is advised that you secure a preceptor prior to contacting our Office.
It is an expectation that all students will read their UMHS Outlook email weekly.
Important updates and new information are communicated in this manner.
PLEASE CLICK ON THE STEPS BELOW TO READ DETAILED INFORMATION ON THE PROCESS THAT MUST BE FOLLOWED TO OBTAIN A CLINICAL PLACEMENT AT UMHS.
An affiliation agreement must be in place between your school of nursing and UMHS. If no agreement currently exists, please send the name, address, phone and fax numbers of the school of nursing contact person to email@example.com so that an agreement can be facilitated by the UMHS Contracting Office. This process varies in length of time from six to twelve weeks, depending on the length of time needed for the two parties to reach an agreement of terms.
University of Michigan-Ann Arbor School of Nursing students receive first priority for preceptor placements within the Health System. Please use the following timeline when approaching UMHS staff as a preceptor for your practicum:
Once a preceptor is identified, all course material must be reviewed and approved by the preceptor. Clinical hours should be arranged directly with the preceptor.
ALL clinical placement requests must be submitted through ACEMAPP, the Alliance for Clinical Experience Matching and Placement Program, through the Michigan Health Council. If your school is not currently a member of ACEMAPP, your school will need to register as a guest in order to submit requests and your student information. The school may contact ACEMAPP through Customer Support on the ACEMAPP website https://michigan.acemapp.org/ or by contacting Rachel Bunnell, the ACE Program Coordinator, directly at Rachel.Bunnell@mhc.org to begin the process.
All students participating in a clinical placement at UMHS must enroll in ACEMAPP for tracking of compliance requirements. These include required immunizations, Flu vaccine, TB screening, BLS certification, Background Checks and Drug Screens.
Requests must be submitted using the following timelines:
All students who complete a clinical practicum at UMHS must be processed through our Identity Registration System (IRS). If your school registrar has access to our IRS, we will ask them to upload your information just prior to the start of the term.
If your school does not have a registrar who regularly submits student information into our IRS, please provide firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
Each clinical nursing student at UMHS must complete a group of institutional and nursing requirements within one week of the start of your program term. Required learning activities include training to MiChart and annually required UMHS and ACE mandatory training.
