For New Students: Before You Arrive

If you are about to begin a Nursing clinical placement at Mount Sinai, there are a number of things that must be completed.  Your school is aware of requirements that need to be fulfilled in order for clinical placements to commence.  Please read the below information carefully and complete requested items. 

 

WSIB

As per the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, streamlined insurance coverage program for students completing unpaid placements with employers provided through the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board, Universities are required to provide a letter to Placement Employers.  Please contact your program coordinator  with any questions regarding WSIB.

 

Student Immunizations

Students and schools  are responsible for ensuring students are have up to date vaccinations and a valid Fit Test Card prior to starting placement and arrangements, and maintaining these records.

Mount Sinai has moved towards  a vaccinate or mask policy that is applicable to all staff, volunteer, and students.  Schools of Nursing have received a copy of Mount Sinai Hospital Flu Vaccination FAQ. Students  who receive their flu vaccine outside of Mounts Sinai  are required to a) carry proof of their flu vaccine status at all times OR 2) receive a MSH flu sticker from MSH Occupational Health.  Students are welcome to visit OCC Health, located at 60 Murray street, Lower Level, Room L1-028 (first floor), to receive their MSH flu vaccine sticker.

 

Computer Training

As in the past, schools are responsible for setting up computer training, except for 4th year pre-grad and consolidation students who are to arrange for their own training.  Please call 416-586-4800, x2100 to set up a time for your students’ computer training.  The module must be completed prior to coming to the hospital. http://www.mountsinai.on.ca/nursing/students/for-new-students-before-you-arrive/computer-training

Please note that eLeanring courses for students is different than Computer Training.  To ensure that our students have the most current & relevant information to guide their practice, all nursing students with a clinical placement at MSH are required to complete several eLearning courses within the first two weeks of placements.  Students can complete these courses prior to their start date.  Students will access the courses through specific course links.  Please contact your program coordinator for courses.
