  CCPS 2.0 Tips and Navigation 
Note "new" 2.0 system features !
Both CCPS 1.0 and CCPS 2.0 can be accessed with one click from the Nursing Resource Center Web site main page. We recommend using this pathway to get to either of the CCPS scheduling tools, or toggle between them as the NRC home page houses helpful resources such as the regional placement calendar dates, past issues of the ReSource newsletters, Clinical Placement Guidelines, and helpful tools and materials developed by the LANRC Advisory Team.    
Activities involved in processing clinical placements for fall 2018 schedules are winding down. All clinical placement decisions for cohort groups and preceptors scheduled this fall should now be completed.
This is a good time to review everything is in place for fall schedules prior to the start of the next clinical placement cycle.

Tips for Schools

  1. Log into CCPS
  2. Click on "Assigned Placements"
Review, insert or update the Instructor information. Enter the exact times students will be on the units. Withdraw any assigned placements if it is not needed. Run a report of all your assigned placements.
  1. To update Instructor: Click on the "Pencil Icon" in the instructor column, select the correct instructor name, click update.
  2. To update time on unit: Click on the "Pencil Icon" in the "Days/Shifts" column and enter the "Start Time" and the "End Time" for the assigned student group. Click Update. Note: The selected times must fall within shift that was assigned by the provider.
