Important updates to Clinical Site Approval Forms!
There have been recent, exciting changes at FNU related to Clinical Planning making the process easier and more transparent for students, faculty and staff.
If you have already submitted paper CSAFs to your RCFs, these will be processed as usual and the information will be submitted to My Clinical Plan. You will be able to view the progress on My Clinical Plan as they are processed by the RCFs and Credentialing. Please do not resubmit the same site/preceptors through the Community Map if you have already sent the information in the old paper format.
After April 4, 2017 ALL site and preceptor requests must be submitted using the new process utilizing the electronic CSAFs; these will link automatically within My Clinical Plan upon submission and review by RCFs and Credentialing.
The RCFs will assist you with this process and there are comprehensive resources from Credentialing including videos and information related to the Community Map, CSAF and My Clinical Plan.
These new resources are in the Portal Page (Department/Credentialing Department). You can review the new process here (you will need to login to the Portal first with your FNU credentials to access these resources).
There are multiple upcoming opportunities over the next few weeks to drop in virtually and work with faculty and staff on this new process.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
