Affiliate Orientation Resources

For faculty and students

On behalf of Nursing Education and Professional Development (NEPD) we want to welcome you to Children's National Health System. We are here to support you in making your clinical rotation an excellent learning opportunity.

All faculty and students must complete orientation and be cleared by NEPD two weeks before starting your clinical learning experience.

This self-study program contains all the materials necessary for completing the orientation requirement except the medication calculation test. The medication test must be taken onsite under the supervision of the NEPD and requires a passing grade of 84 percent. You will be provided two opportunities to pass the test.

Please start by reading the Requirement Sheet and completing the faculty/student section. Review the orientation presentation, orientation book and policies.

Print and fill out the forms and send the completed forms to the following:

For Graduates

Follow the instructions on the Web-based Training Sheet to complete the required eLearning and Electronic Health Record (EHR) modules.

Contact NEPD to schedule the medication calculation test.
