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.
The Clinical Placement Office must receive confirmation from the preceptor that an arrangement has been made to work with a student. Please send confirmation of your arrangement with a preceptor to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your school participates in ACE-MAPP, the request must also be submitted to the Clinical Placement Office by your school through the ACE-MAPP System.
If your school does not participate in ACE-MAPP, you must submit the following information to email@example.com:
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 access to our IRS, we will use the information you have submitted in STEP 3 to process your placement.
Please be certain that your annual mandatory learning activities in MLearning are up-to-date prior to the start of your clinical rotation.
