CCPS 2.0 Student Clinical Requirements Compliance Feature

The new feature was launched by the Foundation for California Community Colleges (FCCC) this past summer followed by several webinar training sessions for CCPS Coordinators.

With the new features, providers and schools can: 

* Quickly define and share site-specific and
    school-specific requirements
* Securely track student documentation and compliance 
    meeting pre-defined requirements
* Efficiently monitor and manage student compliance   
   status prior to the start of each semester - to ease 
* Improve clinical placement coordination and 

The decision to adopt this feature in CCPS is optional and does not impact the student scheduling process. Clinical Agencies choosing to use this feature in their student compliance process should communicate with their affiliated schools to get started.  

For those intending to use it for the upcoming (spring 2020) semester, clinical agencies should be selecting their applicable clinical requirements now from the standard CCPS menu, along with listing  any site-specific requirements. Once requirements are established, affiliated schools can then access it to start setting up their students in the system. Complete both of these "initial set up" steps this fall so the student compliance information is accessible to providers just prior to or at the start of the next semester.

CCPS Spring/Summer 2020 Planning Cycle is underway.

In August, CCPS training for newly hired coordinators was conducted with fourteen (14) coordinators from schools and  clinical agencies were trained.  New coordinator's contact information can be found in the CCPS Participant Directory. Welcome!

Clinical Agency Coordinators should be in the process of reviewing placement requests for the upcoming Spring 2020 semester this month.  If you need help or assistance with CCPS, please feel free to email
CCPS 2.0 Tips and Navigation

Preceptor placements can be processed through CCPS, yet this feature is often underutilized. We encourage participating providers and nursing schools to adopt this as part of your preceptor scheduling process. Doing so adds value, and provides benefits in capturing both cohort and preceptor schedules in CCPS to support communication, coordination, and complete reports capturing all student scheduling activity.     

The process of requesting a nursing preceptor placement is very similar to setting up a nursing cohort schedule. 

Tips for Schools
Making a New Preceptor Request
  1. Log into CCPS
  2. Select New Request from left-hand menu.
  3. Under Placement Type, select Nursing Preceptor.
  4. The placement request form will display. Fill out the information about your students and then select days available for placement, shifts and preferred departments.
  5. Select one or more providers and click Review Request and submit. 
Tips for Providers
Assigning or Declining a Preceptor Request

The process of viewing, assigning, and managing your preceptor placement requests is similar to managing other types of placement requests, but CCPS also allows you to enter new availabilities at any time to match specific preceptor placement requests at the time they are received and confirmed.

CCPS Placement Cycle 
Spring/Summer 2020

August 19 - September 6, 2019
Clinical facilities review and update availability for both cohort and preceptor programs. We understand some clinical facilities will need to modify future availability if census and building plans change. These changes can be done as needed throughout the year. 

September 9 - September 27, 2019
(Preceptor requests due Nov 1)
Schools submit clinical placement requests for all courses  that start January 2020 through the end of the spring/summer terms (courses that usually end by August 31)

September 30 - October 18, 2019
(Preceptor placement decisions due Dec 6)
Clinical facilities review proposed requests from schools and make placement decisions. Clinical facilities are  encouraged to review and accept long-standing historical placements  first and to decline proposals they know cannot accommodate as quickly as possible, as a courtesy to schools.

CCPS Fall/Winter 2020 Placement Cycle Dates
will be announced early next year.
