E. Student Nurse Onboarding

Please do not save documents. Always use this site to make sure you have the most up-to-date information.

As faculty, it is your responsibility to assist with and complete the student nurse onboarding process and ensure that all requirements have been met. You must sign and submit the Student Orientation Instructions and Acknowledgement Form (see below). Further instructions for orientation and document submission are on the form.

Step 1

School will send Nursing Professional Development (NPD) the completed Student RedCarpet upload sheet (XLSX) no less than 30 days prior to the first day students will be on campus.

NPD will process the spreadsheet by sending to Human Resources.

Step 2

Students will receive the RedCarpet welcome email and complete the required tasks in RedCarpet.

  • Students must print, sign and send confidentiality agreement to Human Resources.
    • Human Resources must receive form before assignment is approved.
    • All other forms will be completed electronically.

Students will receive email confirmation from HR that the assignment has been approved. Email will contain their next steps in the onboarding process:

  1. Contact your school coordinator or faculty/instructor for your photo ID badge appointment time.
  2. Complete Student System Access and WBTs (PDF).

Step 3

School coordinator or faculty/instructor:

  • Schedule a group appointment(s) with Seattle Children’s Employee Service Center.
  • Relay group appointments to students.

Step 4

After student’s assignment has been approved, account provisioning will set up student’s username. Account provision will then enter usernames into the username spreadsheet (XLSX). This sheet is password-protected. Nursing Professional Development will distribute the password to the school contact. This password must not be distributed to students.

School coordinator or faculty/instructor will be required to distribute usernames to their students. It is up to each school to determine how often to check the username spreadsheet.

Step 5

Print the Student Orientation Instructions and Acknowledgement Form (DOC) and review, sign and email to Nursing Professional Development (NPD). This form acknowledges that your students have been oriented according to Seattle Children’s requirements and all materials have been reviewed or provided to the student prior to arrival on campus. This form is due on or before the first hour your students are on campus and on units with patients.
