Student Orientation Prior to Practicum

The rules are changing. More and more the Health Authorities are requiring additional checklist items to be completed prior to students being placed into a hospital setting. Vaccinations, Fit-testing and WHMIS are just some examples of the many expectations being enforced when placing students.  These expectations are not limited to the students. Faculty/Instructors who are supervising these practicum students are expected to complete the same orientation items.

To make things easier for schools to prepare for practicum placements, the Health Authorities have compiled a one-stop-shop online orientation checklist and links. Are your students prepared? Are YOU prepared?
