On-campus RN to BSN students, and online students using facilities in Rexburg or Idaho Falls will arrange clinical positions through your instructors in one of your first class meetings. The Nursing Outreach office does not facilitate any of these "local" placements. If you are choosing the project option, please report it on the Clinical Placement Request webpage.
For Online RN to BSN students to successfully secure a clinical position in a timely manner please:
How do I arrange those hours?
If your clinical will be at an IHC facility, complete the IHC packet.
If you have any questions about this process, or need to refer facility personnel to establilsh an affiliation agreement, contact the Nursing Outreach Secretary at (208) 496-1281 for assistance.
If you choose to complete clinical requirements for a course at a facility where BYU-Idaho does not have an Affiliation Agreement, you must complete the RN to BSN Preceptorship Agreement form in duplicate, obtain the appropriate hospital signatures, and submit to the Nursing Outreach office.
This document is drafted by the legal counsel of both BYU-Idaho and the partnering organization. Formalizing these agreements takes a significant amount of time. Once in place the agreement applies to all BYU-Idaho BSN nursing students for the duration specified in the agreement. Generally, only hospitals frequented by our students seek to establish such an agreement.
