Single student vs. group rotations

Single student rotations

Single student rotations allow one student to be scheduled into a rotation. These rotations display separately in individual rotation cards. Teaching institution staff and clinical site staff view and manage onboarding by clicking into each individual rotation card to view that student's progress.

Group rotations

Group rotations allow multiple students to be scheduled into the same rotation. Group rotations are often scheduled when multiple students of the same discipline are rotating together in the same facility, service capacity, date range, and/or with the same faculty/preceptor.

When a group rotation is scheduled, all students in the group display in one rotation card. This allows school staff and clinical site staff to view and manage onboarding for the group in one place.

Managing scheduled rotations

After scheduling a rotation, it will automatically display on your Dashboard Rotation list and Rotation calendar

The student(s) and clinical site staff will be notified that the rotation has been scheduled and they will able to see the rotation on their respective rotation dashboard pages.

To view and complete onboarding steps, click on the rotation card:

When all onboarding steps are complete and/or verified, the rotation will automatically transition into a Ready status. Click here to learn more about rotation statuses and their definitions.
