Dear Nursing Instructor and Nursing Student:

Thank you for choosing St. Vincent’s Birmingham for your clinical experience. We welcome you to our facility. Below are the detailed instructions for clinical rotations and requesting preceptors and the paperwork that must be completed.

Students: In order to become familiar with some of the STVHS policies and guidelines, we have compiled an online manual to deliver information you need to know before beginning your clinical experience.

Please note that STVHS believes that the individual is responsible for reviewing all materials as outlined in this letter. Your signature on the Student and Instructor Receipt Verification of General Orientation Manual Non Associates & Clinical Affiliations form indicates you have accepted and are responsible for the material contained therein.

Clinical Rotation Students: Please print out the following forms and submit them to your instructor. Reviewing the information is essential and must be completed before your first day on campus. (Note: Do NOT complete the Student Information form).

Preceptor Students: Please complete all 5 forms electronically and email them to your instructor. Reviewing the information is essential and must be completed before your instructor can submit the preceptor request. (Note: If you are unable to complete the forms electronically due to a computer issue, please print the forms out, complete them, and return them to your instructor).

Validation of the review of materials is done by completing and returning the five required forms listed below: 

  1. Student and Instructor Verification of Review of ” General Orientation Manual Non Associates  & Clinical Affiliations”
