Clinical Student and Clinical Instructor Orientation

Welcome all nursing, allied health and select disciplines who will be on placement at Scarborough Health Network (SHN). We are pleased that you will be with SHN on your journey to becoming a healthcare professional. You will find a dedicated team of individuals at our hospital to assist you in your pursuit for excellence.

Your mandatory onboarding must be completed, at minimum, 7-days PRIOR to the start of your placement. Delays to onboarding completion will result in a delay to the start of your placement. All Clinical Students and all GROUP clinical instructors are required to complete the mandatory pre-placement onboarding each term they are in placement at SHN, even if active SHN staff and even they’ve been here before. There are no exceptions to mandatory pre-placement onboarding.
