Placement Cycle

Spring/Summer 2019 Planning Cycle:

October 1st 2018 – October 12th 2018
Hospitals review, confirm and extend availability through August 31, 2019 for both cohort and preceptor programs. We understand some hospitals will need to modify future availability if census and building plans change. These changes can be done as needed throughout the year.

October 13th 2018 – October 28th 2018 (Preceptor requests due November 4)
Schools make requests for all courses that start January 2019 through the end of the spring/summer terms. (Courses that usually end by August 31)

October 29th 2018 – November 9th 2018 (Preceptor placement decisions due December 31)
Hospitals review proposed requests and make placement decisions. Hospitals are encouraged to accept long-standing/historic placements and to decline proposals they know they cannot accommodate as quickly as possible, as a courtesy to schools.

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.
