Centralized Clinical Placement System


The Centralized Clinical Placement System is an internet-based tool designed to help address and improve the growing nursing shortage problem. Underutilization of existing clinical placement sites for nursing students and an inefficient clinical placement system combine to form one of the barriers to increasing the number of qualified nurses.

This system brings together school and clinical agency information in a centralized, online format. This enables schools and clinical agencies to achieve a higher level of operating performance: (i) schools can rapidly match clinical placement opportunities for student cohorts (group of 8-10 students) and (ii) clinical agencies can effectively manage a single schedule (for all participating schools) while increasing the number of students within their agency, which provides direct observation and potential identification of future employees.

CCPS Training

CCPS 2.0 Training

The original CCPS system has been redesigned and the new CCPS 2.0 version will be launched in the LA region in spring 2018. 

Training will be provided to all clinical placement coordinators in February to support transition to the new system. The CCPS technical design team at the Foundation for Community Colleges (FCCC) in Sacramento will be on site leading these sessions along with our local HealthImpact team. The new CCPS 2.0 has been expanded to now support scheduling of allied health professionals in addition to RN and LVN programs. Please RSVP for one of the 3-hour training sessions that works best for your schedule. It is essential each school and clinical facility schedule at least one representative participate.  The session will include your review prior placements, and guided activities to support your transition in utilizing the redesigned CCPS 2.0 system this Spring. 

It is important that at least (1) coordinator from each participating School or Clinical Facility attend a training session, and we encourage all to participate  Space is limited with each deliberately kept small to support individualized learning, thus coordinators need to be pre-scheduled to attend. Classes will be held in Pasadena, and location and parking details will be provided to those with confirmed RSVPs.  Please contact Tianda for any questions or email your RSVP to tianda@healthimpact.org .
