Find Scheduled Rotations and Complete Onboarding Steps

Once you are a scheduled faculty on a rotation, either by you or a coordinator, it will appear on your rotations page.

To view rotation details and/or complete onboarding steps:

  • Click Rotations from your left menu

  • You will automatically be directed the the Rotations page

  • Click on the rotation to open the rotation details window

  • In the rotation details window, you can view the student(s) and staff on the rotation, location, schedule, and learning objectives. You can click on different sections (people, schedule, etc.) to expand/condense your view and see more/less information as desired.

  • At the bottom of the window you will find all onboarding steps the clinical site requires before the rotation begins. Directions on how to complete each step will be provided.

  • Note: Sometimes individual onboarding steps will need to be completed by a coordinator. If the step hasn't been completed yet, your rotation will remain in Onboarding status until the coordinator has completed it. Each step will specify who is responsible for completing the step:

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

Communicating Within Clinician Nexus

If you need to communicate with students, school coordinators, or clinical site staff about a rotation, you can do so directly in the rotation details window:

  • Add your message to the comment box (found under the Activity section).

  • Optionally, you can tag the person(s) you are directing your message to by typing "@" and selecting their name from the dropdown list.

  • 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 student or coordinator, and request to connect with them. Once you've connected, you can send a direct message.
