Nursing & Clinical Student Placement

Graduate Nursing, Physician Assistance and Clinical Students Interested in a Preceptorship

Clinical student placements at MidMichigan Health are coordinated through the Workforce Development Office. Once a preceptor has been identified, the following steps will need to be identified to ensure an affiliation agreement is in place, timeline of preceptorship is established, compliance standards are met and that appropriate access is granted to the student.

Process for Obtaining Preceptorship

Step 1: Apply for Academic Intern

All clinical placement requests must be submitted through the MidMichigan Health careers website as an Academic Internship.

Instructions: Applying for an Academic Internship

Step 2: Identify Preceptor

MidMichigan Health departments/employees independently determine whether they will accommodate students. The Workforce Development Office may assist in placing a student with their requested department. Placement is not guaranteed and is based on the staff’s ability to accommodate, and this process may take up to two weeks to secure.

Once an Internship is identified:

  • All course materials must be reviewed/approved by department.
  • Hours should be arranged with department.
  • The department and student make arrangements for schedule of preceptorship.
  • The Workforce Development Office must receive confirmation from the department that an arrangement has been made to work with a student.
    • Please send confirmation of your preceptorship arrangement including schedule, department and number of hours to

Step 3: Affiliation Agreement

If you have been notified that no affiliation agreement exists; send the name, address, phone and fax number and contact person of your school to so that an agreement can be facilitated by the MidMichigan Health Workforce Development Office.

This process may take eight to twelve weeks to complete, depending on the length of time needed for the two parties to reach an agreement of terms.

Step 4: Placement Request Submission

SPA Clinical Passport - If granted an internship, students must obtain a valid SPA clinical passport at If your school is not currently a member of SPA, you will be charged a fee through PayPal to complete the passport requirements.

Students must provide the following records:

  • Immunization Records
  • Flu vaccine (if on-site during the designated Flu season)
  • TB screening
  • BLS certification
  • Background Check
  • Drug Screens
  • Fingerprinting may also be required depending on area requested

Compliance Requirements - All students participating in a clinical placement at MidMichigan Health must complete compliance requirements through SPA and the MidMichigan Health module.

Orientation Information - Students must review all materials.

Step 5: Processing for Placement & Computer Logins/Access

Students with clinical placement at MidMichigan Health may be granted access to our computer systems based on the placement location and the specifications of the role within the health system. The department or office manager and student are responsible for ensuring that the correct computer logins/access have been requested.

Step 6: MidMichigan Health Badges

The department or office manager will determine whether the student needs a MidMichigan Health ID and will request the badge through the Security Office.

The student must be identifiable when on MidMichigan Health sites; therefore the student must wear their student badges if a MidMichigan Health ID is not requested for internship.
