Allina Health Pre-Licensure Student Preparation Information

Welcome to Allina Health. We are excited to provide an environment where our professional staff and quality health care lend themselves to an excellent learning experience for all clinical students. Students are the future of healthcare! This site is intended to provide clinical students with the necessary information to make their clinical experience a successful one. Please note that Allina Health accepts only approved clinical experiences. Faculty and/or program directors must contact the academic coordinators at the site for required approval.

Ebola – Student Process

Allina Health would like to communicate its Ebola plan as it relates to student activity.

If a student has traveled to any country with Ebola (per the CDC – http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/outbreaks/history/distribution-map.html ), or has contact with a person with symptomatic Ebola, the student must complete the 21 day monitoring AND be seen in the Allina Health clinical site’s Employee Health Services for screening PRIOR to coming to any Allina Health clinical rotation.

If an actual or suspected Ebola patient presents at the Allina Health clinical site, students will be immediately removed and faculty/coordinators notified. Contact your faculty if you have any questions.

List of Mandatory Requirements for every Clinical Student:

  1. The school with whom the clinical student is registered must have a signed Allina Affiliation Agreement on file.
  2. All clinical students must register for EVERY clinical experience at Allina (even for multiple experiences at Allina sites). Click on the directions document for specific website.
  3. Allina Health is mandated by the MN Department of Human Services to have all clinical students (no exceptions) clear a MN DHS background study without disqualifications. Schools must complete this study for each student.
  4. Allina Health follows the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations for required immunization status. Please see attached document for Allina’s required list. (copy of appendix K)
  5. Students must complete the Allina Clinical Student Orientation prior to every clinical rotation.
