The following Quick Reference Guides were developed to support the clinical placement process for nursing students in Saskatchewan. The Guides apply to all nursing programs that use HSPnet to manage student placements and to all Saskatchewan Health Authority clinical sites.
The Guides assist with a consistent and effective clinical placement process by outlining expectations around: collaborative planning, adherence to common release dates, comprehensive tracking of all placements in HSPnet (including out of province), timelines for responding to placement requests, and programs finalizing student placement criteria.
There is a different Guide for each role involved in the clinical placement process:
The Guides were developed by a working group, facilitated by the Clinical Learning and Interprofessional Practice Unit, and comprised of representatives of the following post-secondary institutions and former regional health authorities. These Guides remain in force today.
