Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is resulting in clinical rotation changes.  As teaching institutions and clinical sites adapt plans for student rotations, we are working to provide tools to help you reflect these changes in Clinician Nexus. 

In this article we will cover:

  • Pausing a rotation
  • Resuming a rotation
  • Marking a rotation as complete

Pausing a rotation

If a student's rotation is in Onboarding, Ready, or Active status when a rotation needs to be suspended, but there is a possibility that the student may resume this rotation in the future, you can pause their rotation. When a rotation is paused, you can resume, mark it complete, or close it once decisions have been made. 

Clinical sites and teaching institutions can pause an Active rotation:

  • On your Rotations dashboard, click on the Active rotation that you would like to pause. 
  • Click the Pause rotation button in the top right corner of the window.
  • Provide an explanation for why the rotation is paused. This message will be communicated with all parties on the rotation. 
  • Click the Pause rotation button. 
  • The rotation will now display in a Paused status on your Rotations dashboard.

Once a rotation is Paused, it will stay there indefinitely, regardless of the dates specified on the rotation, until someone manually resumes, marks complete, or cancels the rotation. 

To make such changes, click on the Paused rotation from your Rotations dashboard to open the Rotation Details window and follow the instructions below:

Resuming a rotation

If a paused rotation is ready to continue, you can resume the rotation in Clinician Nexus. In the Rotation Details window:

  • Click Resume rotation button.
  • Select a new start and/or end date for the rotation.
  • You can optionally add a comment about this update.
  • Click Resume rotation.
  • All parties on the rotation will be notified about this update and the rotation will display in Active status on your Rotations Dashboard. 

Marking a rotation as Complete

If you decide that the time a student spent rotating prior to COVID-19 will qualify as a completed rotation, you can mark a Paused rotation Complete. In the Rotation Details window:

  • Click the Complete rotation button. 
  • Select the rotation's end date.
  • You can optionally add a comment about this update.
  • Click Complete rotation.
  • All parties on the rotation will be notified about this update and the rotation will display in Completed status on your Rotations Dashboard. 

Canceling a rotation

If a paused rotation will not resume nor will it qualify as a completed rotation, you can cancel the paused rotation. In the Rotation Details window:

  • Click the Cancel rotation button. 
  • Select the reason us why you're closing the rotation.
  • You can optionally add a comment about the rotation cancellation.
  • Click Cancel rotation.
  • All parties on the rotation will be notified about this update and the rotation will display in Closed status on your Rotations Dashboard.
