Welcome to Allina Health!

All Allina Health Academic Resources for all student types, with the new Registration Process, have been moved to: Allina Health Student Preparation.

Approval Process

  1. Allina Health can only accept students from schools that have an active Clinical Affiliation Agreement with Allina Health.
    • All APRN Faculty MUST have a current MN Nursing license. The preceptor is not the faculty.
    • The Agreement requires that the college obtain a background check from the Minnesota or Wisconsin DHS (based on clinical site location) as required by state law. Some colleges decline to do this and as a result we must decline their students.
  2. Clinical and Project placement must be approved by Allina Health formally.
