Searching for Rotations

Once this is complete, you can search for available experiences:

  • Click find clinical experiences on the left dashboard menu

On the search page:

  • Enter search criteria and/or filter for clinical experience of interest.

  • You can use the map to search by location.

  • From the search results, click on a listing to learn more about it.

  • If interested, click Start application:

Applying for Rotations

After clicking start application, you will automatically be directed to the application.

  • Complete the Schedule, Learning objectives, and Application steps.

  • Click Save changes at the top of the screen to save your work, and return to the application at a later time. To return to the application, simply click on the rotation card displayed on your Rotation dashboard.

  • Click Cancel rotation if you no longer want to continue your application.

  • Click Save and submit request once your application is complete, to formally submit your application to the clinical site.

Once you submit, your application will automatically transition from Unsubmitted status to Pending status:

Completing Onboarding Steps

If your application is accepted, your clinical experience information will move into Onboarding status. This means you have site-specific onboarding steps to complete. Make sure to complete the steps on time so you're ready for your first day!

To view and complete onboarding steps:

  • Click on the clinical experience card to open the details window.

  • In the details, you can view information about your clinical experience.

  • Scroll to the bottom of the window to access your onboarding steps requiring completion.

Note: Sometimes individual onboarding steps will need to be completed by a school or clinical site coordinator. If that step hasn't been completed yet, your rotation will remain in Onboarding status until the coordinator has completed it.

Once these steps are complete and/or verified (if applicable), your clinical experience will move into Ready status.

Communicate in Clinician Nexus

If you have questions about onboarding, or the request itself:

  • Click on the experience from your dashboard.

  • Add your message in the comment box.

  • Click Add comment.

    Note: All parties on the rotation will be notified when a new comment has been added.

You also have the option to click into the profile of the coordinator and connect with them. Once you've connected, you can send a direct message.
