Things to consider:

  2. If a placement is a rollover from the previous year, please remember to check that the contact information listed in the bottom portion of the request is up to date and accurate.
  3. Be sure that all of the placement details are correct. The start and end dates in the consortium should reflect the time period in which the students will be at Scripps, not the duration of the class they are enrolled in. The start date listed should be the clinical start date.
  4. Scripps employees that are also students must complete all student requirements including background check and drug screen.

Please be aware that when a request is approved in the consortium, it means that we are able to accommodate the request. However, you should expect to see a clearance email from Student Placements clearing each student prior to the start of the rotation. If you have not received the clearance email one week prior to a student’s start date, please email to check on clearance prior to sending the student for their first day.

*If your school is not a member of the San Diego Nursing and Allied Health Service Education Consortium: Your students are required to use American DataBank/Complio’s document tracking option and share their profile with Scripps health. The school will still be responsible for submitting a signed Student Orientation Record to Scripps Student Placements. Be sure to include the SEL# and the student/s full name in the email.
