Placement Cycle

Summer 2017 Placement Cycle Dates:


January 30 - February 19, 2017: Hospitals review, confirm, and extend availability through August 2017. 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.

February 20 - March 12, 2017: Schools submit placement requests for all courses that run May through August 2017. Schools should not submit placement requests prior to these dates.

March 13 – March 31, 2017: 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.



Fall 2017 Placement Cycle Dates:


May 1 - May 21, 2017: Hospitals review, confirm, and extend availability through December 2017. 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.

May 22 - June 11, 2017: Schools submit placement requests for all courses that run August 2017 through December 2017. Schools should not submit placement requests prior to these dates.

What's New?

Update on the Enhanced CCPS:

As we get closer to completing our development of CCPS (2.0), we will be scheduling opportunities to help you get familiar with the new features and share your thoughts and ideas. Regions will be able to move to the new CCPS upon request after the project is complete, with assistance from our team to make the transition smooth and seamless.

Enhancements in progress include:
  • Modern design and simplified navigation
  • Responsive layout that works on tablets and mobile devices
  • Dashboard that provides an at-a-glance view of key information and activity
  • Cleaner and simpler layout on Historical Placement page
  • Flexibility to incorporate cohort, preceptor, and allied health placement types
Timeline of Activities:

While we are finishing the development process, some of the activities we have planned include:

  • "Sneak peek" at some of the new features; beta testing with pilot sites
  • Regional Planning meetings to determine rollout schedules
  • Announcement of rollout schedules

We will be working with your regional coordinators to select the right time for your region to transition to the new CCPS. Once your region requests to begin the implementation process, you should expect regular updates related to learning about new features, signing up for training opportunities, and migrating your data from the current CCPS.

Data Migration:

We are committed to ensuring that migrating data from the current to the new CCPS is as simple as possible, and are in the process of developing streamlined data collection and uploading processes related to both provider and school data as well as Historical Placement cycles.

About CCPS

The Centralized Clinical Placement System is an internet-based tool designed to help address and improve the growing nursing shortage problem. Underutilization of existing clinical placement sites for nursing students and an inefficient clinical placement system combine to form one of the barriers to increasing the number of qualified nurses.

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.
