The Clinical Placement Office is designed to assist faculty, undergraduate and graduate students in identifying individualized clinical placement opportunities throughout the Greater Los Angeles area. The coordinators are charged with securing new agency agreements and ensuring existing agreement remain current. Additionally, the coordinators facilitate the communications between the SON and the clinical facilities.
The coordinators coordinate with faculty to meet students in the classroom to discuss placement trends, requests, due dates and to announce deadlines. As a backup emails are sent to students CSULA accounts and phone calls are made to ensure that students have the necessary information for placement.
The CPO maintains a Moodle site (School of Nursing Clinical Preceptored Courses Vault) which houses the necessary clinical paperwork for various clinical sites for both students and faculty to complete.
Clinical Agency Site and Preceptor Recruitment
The coordinators, faculty, staff and/or students can identify new clinical sites and/or preceptors. The coordinators will follow up on any leads. The best way to secure a new contract is to provide the coordinators with the Name of the site, location, phone number and a contact person to explore the site’s/preceptor’s interest in establishing a partnership with CSULA SON.
