Spring 2017 Placement Cycle Dates:
September 12 - October 2, 2016: Hospitals review, confirm, and extend availability through May. It is understood that some hospitals will need to modify this availability as census and building plans change. These changes can be done on an as-needed basis throughout the year.
October 3 - October 23, 2016: Schools submit placement requests for all courses that run January through May. Schools should not submit placement requests prior to these dates.
October 24 – November 13, 2016: Hospitals review proposed requests, make placement decisions and respond to all placement requests. Hospitals should not make placement decisions prior to these dates. Be sure to run a report of all placement requests using the Placement Calendar prior to accepting placements. Additionally, hospitals are encouraged to accept long-standing/historical placements and to decline proposals they cannot accommodate as quickly as possible as a courtesy to the schools.

This system brings together school and clinical agency information in a centralized,
online format. This enables schools and clinical agencies to achieve a higher level
of operating performance: (i) schools can rapidly match clinical placement opportunities
for student cohorts (group of 8-10 students) and (ii) clinical agencies can effectively
manage a single schedule (for all participating schools) while increasing the number
of students within their agency, which provides direct observation and potential
identification of future employees.
Thank you to the Betty Irene Moore Nursing Initiative for their financial support
for this project.
