All clinical placement requests must be submitted through the ACE-MAPP System, including all observational requests. If the request is for a precepted experience, please include the UMHS staff preceptor’s name in the ACE request.
Non-U of M-graduate student requests can only be accommodated after all U of M School of Nursing graduate student placements have been secured. Please use the following timeline when requesting graduate student preceptors through the ACE-MAPP System:
APRNs at UMHS independently determine whether they will precept students. You must contact them directly to secure a placement. The Clinical Placement Office is unable to provide assistance in this aspect.
All student and instructor names must be submitted each term through the UMHS Identity Registration System (IRS).
Student and instructor information must be submitted at least two-three weeks prior to the start of the term. This will ensure adequate time for our IT department to process computer logins and enable students to complete institutional requirements and schedule any required classroom training. You will be notified by our Clinical Placement Office several weeks prior to the IRS upload deadline.
Additions, deletions, or changes to student or faculty names must be submitted through the IRS. These edits can be submitted at any time.
PLEASE NOTE: If there is a need to extend a student or instructor's account beyond the current semester's end date, the request must be made to email@example.com before the account expires. Once the account expires for the term, accounts will not be recreated.
All students with a clinical placement at UMHS will be granted access to our computer systems based on the placement location and the requirements of the role within the health system.
It is advised that faculty and students validate access code (uniqname or user ID and password) functionality before beginning clinical hours. If there are any issues with IDs or passwords, they should contact the MCIT Help Desk at 734.936.8000.
ACCESS CODES will be distributed as follows:
PLEASE NOTE: If there is a need to extend a student's account beyond the current semester's end date, the request must be made to Clinicalplacement@med.umich.edu before the account expires. Once the account expires for the term, accounts will not be recreated.
PLEASE NOTE: Observational experiences can only be arranged through the UMHS Clinical Placement Office during the SON placement request period. Individual instructors may not approach units to ask to bring students there for observational experiences or visits.
ONLINE PREREQUISITES IN MLEARNING (UMHS Learning Management System)
Once the students and instructors have received their Level 2 user IDs and passwords, they should login to MLearning and locate their required learning activities on their Learning Plan. The required learning activities are also listed by student type on the Resources tab Institutional Requirements List. If any activities are missing, they should call MLearning at 734.615.5146 to ask to be added to the "nursing student clinical placement domain" by their student type (see list). Instructions on how to login to MLearning from off site can be found on the Resources tab.
PLEASE NOTE: All institutional requirements must be completed prior to the first clinical day on the unit.
It is an expectation that all instructors and students will read their UMHS Outlook email weekly.
Important updates and new information are communicated in this manner.
