UMHS Nursing Clinical Placement:
Prospective Students Interested in a Preceptorship
All requests for student clinical placement at the University of Michigan Health System must be coordinated through the Clinical Placement Coordinator at email@example.com
There is extremely limited availability for preceptorships for non-UM school of nursing students within the University of Michigan Hospital and Health System as we continue to grow our nursing programs and maximize our capacity. Prior to any arrangements being made: you must receive confirmation from the Clinical Placement Coordinator that all UM student placements have been secured. Please be aware that this information may not be known until several weeks before the start of the term. Once you have received confirmation from Clinical Placement that you can proceed with a practicum here, please follow the steps below.
Click on the steps below to read details on the process for placement of non-UM students:
For preceptor placements, we believe that the instructor and student can best determine who the precptor should be, based on the desired experience for the student. Therefore, Clinical Placement at UMHS does not assist in the arrangement of preceptors for students.
Please remember: prior to any arrangements being made for non-UM students, you must confirm with Clinical Placement at firstname.lastname@example.org, that all U of M students have already been accommodated with their placements here.
All student and instructor names must be submitted through the UMHS Identity Registration System (IRS) in order for computer access codes to be created. Expect this process to take two weeks or longer.
- You must obtain a MCard ID badge at the Key/ID Office. The signed ID Request Form can be obtained through the Clinical Placement Office. The ID must be worn at all times in the clinical areas.
- You must complete all required learning activities* on your MLearning Learning Plan. Please see the "Institutional Requirement List" on the Resource page.
- Please review all information in the Policies/Guidelines section before beginning your practicum.
CNS students should discuss the need for the full classroom course with their preceptor.
For questions regarding CareLink, please call (734) 936-8000 option #2.
Please print and fax your MLearning transcript to the Professional Development & Education Office at (734) 764-5316.
