All Faculty

New faculty are to be identified and communicated to NPPDI no less than one month prior to the first day on campus. The school will identify and communicate to NPPDI which faculty are teaching on which unit no less than two weeks prior to the beginning of the term. To onboard new or returning faculty, the school will complete the blue-highlighted columns on the upload sheet (XLSX) and forward to Seattle Children's Nursing Schools. As part of the onboarding process, after receiving confirmation of Vendor-Clinical status, faculty are to contact the Employee Service Center at 206-987-1020 to set up a time to obtain a faculty badge and receive their transportation assignment.

All School of Nursing (SON) clinical faculty are required to complete certain competencies and online trainings annually, as well as an annual four-hour shadow on each of the units they will be teaching. These requirements must be completed no less than two weeks prior to bringing students on Seattle Children’s campus. Complete the items on the checklist and return to Seattle Children's Nursing Schools no less than two weeks prior to the first day on campus.

Review web-based trainings (WBTs); policies and procedures; handbooks; and information, found in the PDF above, prior to arriving on campus. Faculty must be logged on to Seattle Children’s network to complete the requirements.
