Placement Cycle

Fall/Winter 2018 Planning Cycle:

January 29 – February 16, 2018
Hospital coordinators will complete this first step during a CCPS 2.0 training session to learn new features while also updating unit availability. Clinical facilities review, confirm and extend availability through December 31, 2018 for both cohort and preceptor programs. We understand some clinical facilities will need to modify future availability if census and building plans change. These changes can be done as needed throughout the year.

February 20 – March 30, 2018 (Preceptor requests due April 20)
Schools make requests for all courses that start Mid-August 2018 through the end of the fall or winter terms (courses that usually end by December 31).

April 2 – April 20, 2018 (Preceptor placement decisions due May 11)
Clinical facilities review proposed requests and make placement decisions. Clinical facilities 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.

Training Details:

Training will be provided to all clinical placement coordinators in February to support transition to the new system. The CCPS technical design team at the Foundation for Community Colleges (FCCC) in Sacramento will be on site leading these sessions along with our local HealthImpact team. The new CCPS 2.0 has been expanded to now support scheduling of allied health professionals in addition to RN and LVN programs. Please RSVP for one of the 3-hour training sessions that works best for your schedule. It is essential each school and clinical facility schedule at least one representative participate. The session will include your review prior placements, and guided activities to support your transition in utilizing the redesigned CCPS 2.0 system this Spring.

It is important that at least (1) coordinator from each participating School or Clinical Facility attend a training session, and we encourage all to participate Space is limited with each deliberately kept small to support individualized learning, thus coordinators need to be pre-scheduled to attend. Classes will be held in Pasadena, and location and parking details will be provided to those with confirmed RSVPs.

Please contact Tianda for any questions or email your RSVP to Tianda@healthimpact.org.

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.
