Central Florida Regional Hospital proudly supports the education of future healthcare providers through affiliations with multiple schools. We look forward to working with the school’s faculty to help make their students’ experiences meaningful and educational.

Student Placement Process

Step 1:

An Affiliation Agreement between Central Florida Regional Hospital and the School requesting clinical site placement.

An Affiliation Agreement must be in place between the School and Central Florida Regional Hospital. Students should not contact the hospital directly for placement. To inquire about initiating an Affiliation Agreement please contact Janneice V. Caldwell, MSN, RN, Student Clinical Coordinator, at (407) 321-4500 ext. 35609 or by email.

Step 2:

At least One Month prior to the start of a clinical rotation:

  • Request for Student Placement is required at least one month prior to the start of a clinical rotation
  • Nursing Student Orientation needs to be scheduled at least one month prior to the start of a clinical rotation or practicum placement. Contact Janneice V. Caldwell to schedule orientation for the Nursing Students and a Meditech (computer) Training class.

Step 3:

At least Two Weeks prior to start of a clinical rotation all required student paperwork must be submitted. Submit the following forms and orientation materials to Janneice V. Caldwell. No student will be allowed to begin their rotation until these forms are received and the student is cleared to begin the clinical rotation.

  • Student Record
    Completed by an authorized representative of the school
  • Statement of Responsibility

Student Orientation Information and Materials

In order to provide the optimum clinical experience for students, it is essential that they are sufficiently oriented to our facility and to their assigned department. Please click on the appropriate link below to access the student orientation information and materials.

Nursing School Instructor Orientation Information and Materials

New nursing school instructors are required to be oriented to our facility and the nursing units on which they will bring student groups. We have developed a comprehensive orientation for instructors as well as providing support for them to orient their students. All instructors are expected to complete the self studies that their students complete (see links above). Contact Staff Development for further orientation paperwork and instructions.

Please NOTE: New instructors are strongly encouraged to attend 3 days of our hospital-wide orientation—Clinical Staff Orientation, Nursing Orientation, and Meditech/eMAR Training. Please call Janneice V. Caldwell to schedule.

Additional Resources

We are continually evaluating and improving our student process. We welcome and appreciate feedback about student experiences in our facility. Students and faculty are asked to complete an Evaluation Form at the end of their clinical rotations and return them to Janneice V. Caldwell in Staff Development.
