Nursing Student Clinical Placement

Undergraduate StudentsUndergraduate Students

If you are an undergraduate student looking for a clinical placement at the University of Michigan Health System (UMHS), please see the Prospective Student page. Please be aware that all placements within UMHS must be coordinated through the Clinical Placement Office.



It is an expectation that all students will read their UMHS Outlook
email weekly. Important updates and new information are communicated in this manner.

For cohort group students, please click on the steps below to read detailed information on the process that must be followed at the start of each term.

Step 1          Computer Logins/Access

All students with a clinical placement at UMHS will be granted access to our computer systems based on your placement location and the specifications of your role within UMHS.

Health Information Technology & Services (HITS) processes the access needed for all students. You will receive an email from 2-3 weeks prior to your clinical start date. This will be sent to the email address your school provided to us. In the email from Identity Management you will be given a link and step-by-step instructions to set your password(s).

If you are a UMHS employee, no change will occur to your uniqname/username or passwords, but you will be granted access to any new systems required for your practicum (pending completion of any required training).

Please be certain to validate access code (uniqname/username and password) functionality before beginning clinical hours if you are new to UMHS. If there are any issues with IDs or passwords, please contact the Health Information Technology & Services (HITS) service desk at 734-936-8000.

Omnicell Medication Cabinet: If you have been given access to the Omnicell for your student role, you will use your Level 2 password to access the Omnicell cabinet. Your instructor will then assist you with your Bio-ID (fingerprint) enrollment.

Step 2          Completing Institutional Requirements

Each clinical nursing student at UMHS must complete a group of institutional requirements prior to the start of your clinical practicum. Required learning activities include training to the electronic health record (MiChart) in MLearning and institutional requirements in ACEMAPP.

MiChart Training Requirements

  1. Undergraduate students in the inpatient and ICU settings, the PACUs, Birth Center, ED, or ambulatory care will complete eLearning modules in MLearning to satisfy their MiChart training requirement.
  2. Undergraduate students who need access to MiChart in order to view data must complete a Clinical View Only eLearning activity. This includes students at MVN for Community Health and students in Leadership placements.
  3. To access MLearning, go to and log in with your Username and Level 2 Password. MLearning works best in the Chrome browser.
  4. Access to the documentation system will only be granted after successful completion of all training, including required quizzes.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are an employee at UMHS who currently uses MiChart, you will have a dual account in MiChart. You must choose which role you’re functioning in upon login, which will allow you to access all pertinent tools for that role. Please see the MiChart Tip Sheet entitled “MiChart Account Manager-For Users with Multiple Accounts” on the MiChart website for complete instructions. You should also receive this information in an email from MiChart Security when the new role is created for you.

For any issues or questions related to MLearning, please email MLearning at for assistance.

Institutional Requirements

Institutional requirements consist of a set of online learning activities required by regulatory agencies, such as the Joint Commission, or as required by UMHS policy. These must be completed in ACEMAPP. Please contact your School of Nursing Coordinator if you have not received information related to your ACEMAPP logins.

Please review the Institutional Requirement List to verify what must be completed. Your ability to begin your clinical hours may be delayed if these requirements are not complete prior to your start date.
