Please remember that all preceptor forms and resumes must be submitted by the SUBMISSION DEADLINE to be processed. Any paperwork received after this deadline will be processed for the following term. All CastleBranch requirements and Affiliation Agreements with the sites need to be completed/approved by the COMPLETION DEADLINE.
Deadlines for Submitting Preceptor and Site Info for Approval and Clearance to Register for Clinical/Practicum Course
Submit your preceptor application by the deadline below for your desired term using the online form. IMPORTANT: Please make sure you have provided accurate information for the preceptor AND for a contact person within the healthcare organization who coordinates placements/affiliation agreements. Inaccurate information can delay the review and processing for your placement.
Ensure that all requirements are completed including CastleBranch (immunizations, drug test, background check, and other required documents) and any additional requirements your clinical site may require.
*Please note that if you are unable to submit your preceptor/site information by the deadline, we will try to accommodate later submissions as time allows, but due to review and processing timeframes we cannot guarantee that late submissions will be finalized in time for your desired term. Please contact Nursing Operations Administrator at email@example.com if you need an extension.
PLEASE NOTE: Affiliation Agreements can take anywhere from 1 week to several months to finalize and we cannot allow students to participate at any clinical site unless there is a current Agreement in place. Although all submissions meeting the deadline will be processed, we are not able to guarantee that the Agreement will be finalized by the COMPLETION DEADLINE so we encourage students to submit their preceptor/site information well in advance of the SUBMISSION DEADLINE.
You will be notified of clearance for your clinical/practicum within 7 days of the COMPLETION DEADLINE.
