Information for instructors

Mandatory training for instructors

All students and instructors are required to complete the Student Practice Education Core Orientation (SPECO), the VCH Confidentiality Undertaking module, and any applicable discipline-specific training.

If you are also a VCH employee, you do not need to create a new account in the Learning Hub. Please reuse your existing Learning Hub account to complete the required training. 

Unit manuals for instructors

We strongly encourage placing agencies to create and maintain their own unit manuals or guides for incoming instructors to streamline the orientation process for new instructors on site and help them familiarize themselves with the unit faster. Optionally, placing agencies may choose to share the manual with the unit’s Clinical Nurse Educator.

If the placing agency is new and does not have any instructors who would be familiar with the unit, we recommend connecting with another PSI regarding their unit manual or reach out to the HSPnet Destination Contact of your accepted placement to request more information about the unit in advance of the placement start date.

Room Bookings for Group Students

VCH Student Practice does not process room booking requests and has no access to the VCH room inventory. If you require a room for your student group or other student practice-related meetings on site, please consider the following alternatives first:

  • Virtual meetings

  • PSI on-campus rooms and designated meeting spaces 

If you urgently require a meeting room at a VCH facility and none of the above options work for you, please contact the administrative staff on the unit where your students are placed.

Placement onboarding and provisioning questions

If you have questions about your or your students’ training and access, please first connect with your school placing coordinator. If, after that, your question is still unresolved, the placing coordinator will then contact the VCH Student Practice team and provide all the necessary information in order for us to assist.
