Also, click on and enjoy our new MiChart Resource Page with a calendar of MiChart classes you can reference and sign up for before your clinical start date.
Students and instructors must wear a valid UMHS MCard ID at all times in the clinical areas.
UM students: U of M campus MCard IDs will not give access to the necessary areas within the Health System. You must obtain a UMHS MCard ID. Once you have a UMHS MCard ID, Heath System updates to your access can be made remotely when you are processed for your clinical placement each term.
School of nursing instructors are the designated signers on the ID Card Request Form. Instructors must:
All required information, including the UMID or uniqname must be filled in on the form prior to arriving at the Key/ID Office.
EACH student/instructor must have a completed ID form to take to the Key/ID Office. If there are any questions on completing the form, please contact the Key/ID Office at 734-763-6376 or the ID Station Manager at 734-763-4741. Special Access: Students will not be given access to restricted areas within the Health System (e.g., the psych units, ORs) and some areas (e.g. unit locker rooms) require additional access approval.
Students working on a unit that requires additional access approval must ask the unit to email the Key/ID Office at email@example.com to grant authorization. Instructors are to give the unit a list of the student names and uniqnames. When the unit submits this to the Key/ID Office for authorization, the access will be granted remotely.
NOTE: If you lose or damage your ID, you will need to pay a $20.00 replacement fee to get a new card.
Glucometer Testing Participant Record Form and Accu- Check Demo Checklist The Point of Care Glucometer Testing competency is required for all students who will be performing glucose testing. In addition to the course in MLearning, all students must complete a demonstration with their instructor. A demo check-list for Accu-Check competency evaluation is provided for you on the link above. Please have your students sign the "Glucometer Testing Participant Record" and send the form to PD&E so that we can enter the data into MLearning. Students will not receive barcode strips for performing glucose testing. Instead, students will type their 8 digit UMID number into the glucometer.
Please provide the unit with your contact information EACH semester (or once yearly if you will be remaining on the same unit for the academic year) using the "Instructor Contact Information" form.
Each instructor or graduate student preceptor must validate student compliance to the UMHHC Institutional Requirements. When your students have completed all of the institutional requirements, please review their printed MLearning and SABA transcripts. Once you have verified all transcripts are complete, please sign and mail the form to: Professional Development and Education (address is on the form).
You do not need to mail the printed transcripts.
IMPORTANT: As a nursing student or instructor at UMHS you must complete required learning activities prior to beginning your clinical practicum.

MiChart Training Requirements and Completion Instructions: MiChart training consists of one or more instructor-led training classes and one or more online eLearning activities. If you do not complete all required MiChart training you will not be able to access the MiChart system and will not be able to document or manage your patients’ health care needs.
UMHS Annual Mandatory Learning Activities Completion Instructions: UMHS Annual Mandatories consist of a set of online learning activities required by regulatory agencies, such as the Joint Commission, or as required by UMHS policy. UMHS Annual Mandatories are completed through the UMHS learning management system: MLearning.
Completing Mandatories on a Computer on the UMHS Network: To access MLearning from a computer on the UMHS network, go to MLearning.

As the number of influenza cases in our area continues to drop, the need to require unvaccinated students to wear masks has waned.
If a student has been wearing a mask because they have not been vaccinated against the flu, this is the official “masks off” message. Effective immediately, flu masks no longer need to be worn in the hospital setting, unless you are ill with an upper respiratory infection.
Please be aware that even though cases have decreased, there is still flu in our area and we should continue to abide by all infection control best practices.
The restrictions for students with influenza-like illness still apply.
Access to clinical units is meant to be on clinical days and times as planned in your curriculum. Should you need to return to the unit for other clinical purposes, this should be cleared with the corresponding clinical faculty for the course. If you are visiting someone on the unit, you need to follow/request admittance to the unit using the visitation policy for that unit, including the standards for locked units. Please remember that issues related to HIPAA and safety as well as other considerations may be involved.
