Academic Coordinators

​​Requests for Scholastic Placements at a Presbyterian Facility should be sent by the school or university’s student coordinators/Direct Appraiser. For nursing clinical rotations, please contact nsgstudentcoordinator@phs.org and for allied health clinical rotations, please contact clinicalcoordinator@phs.org. To assist us in the placement of students, we ask that only student coordinators/Direct Appraisers contact Presbyterian.

Request Deadlines

We are currently placing students from over 92 academic programs in our facilities. In an effort to provide equitable placement for all programs, we ask that requests for cohort placements and preceptors be placed well in advance.

We understand that not every school is on the same semester cycle and have attempted to make the priority dates as universal as possible. These deadlines apply to all semester-based programs. Special arrangements will be made with certificate programs that have frequent class starts. We also understand that academic programs might not have exact enrollment numbers at the time of request, but priority placement will be given to requests made by the deadline.

  • Semester: Spring
    Priority placement request deadline: October 31
    Confirmation returned by: November 30
  • Semester: Summer
    Priority placement request deadline: March 31
    Confirmation returned by: April 30
  • Semester: Fall
    Priority placement request deadline: June 30
    Confirmation returned by: July 31

Preceptors

Preceptors, or one-on-one teaching, provides students with focused and individualized attention and are often part of the academic curriculum. We will always try to accommodate these needs. However, a variety of factors such as staffing patterns, patient acuity, and individual unit resources may impact our ability to meet each of these requests. Additionally, in order to maintain a safe environment, it is not possible to place multiple students into preceptorships on the same unit at the same time. Students and academic facilities can assist this process by being as flexible with their schedule as possible.

We are also asking that you make preceptor requests at the same time. The request should include:

  • Approximate number of students
  • Students' preferred specialties/facilities

Again, we understand that you might not know exact numbers at the time you submit the request, but approximation will help us equitably distribute our available preceptors throughout the academic programs.

We will return confirmation of clinical placement as well as a list of preceptors with contact information by the above dates to give you ample time to plan and confirm student schedules.

Clinical Roster

The Clinical Roster is used to track the students during their rotations. It contains pertinent information that we use for several purposes. The Clinical Roster should be completed no later than two weeks prior to the clinical rotation.

Orientation to Units

Presbyterian requires that all licensed faculty or instructors who are scheduled to supervise students receive an orientation to that unit/department prior to the clinical start date. The orientation is done one time for each new unit. However, before the start of each new semester, the faculty/Instructor should visit for updates and/or new processes. Faculty and/or Instructors need to be in compliance prior to being scheduled.

The 1st Day Instructor Orientation Form must be completed during this initial orientation. Please return 1st Day Orientation Form to your school coordinator who will then send to the appropriate Presbyterian contact:

Nursing: nsgstudentcoordinator@phs.org OR
Allied Health: clinicalcoordinator@phs.org
