ClinConnect is a web-based resource designed to manage clinical placements for health care students who will undertake clinical placement in NSW Heath facilities / services.

Students are required to meet the immunisation and criminal record check requirements in order to attend clinical placements.

This student education module has been developed to provide you with the information and resources you require in order to have your compliance with requirements verified in the ClinConnect database to enable you to attend clinical placement.

It is recommend you review all of the information provided and follow the instructions required for submission of your information for your specific education provider / campus.

Your immunisation compliance must be completed within six months of commencement of the course and well in advance of any clinical placement, remembering that some immunisations can take months to complete. For most disciplines you must complete this in semester one. For those disciplines that attend clinical placement in the first semester of study (such as medicine and midwifery) you will need to plan ahead to get this done before clinical placement.

Criminal Record Checks (CRC) can take some time to obtain so it is recommended you apply for this before commencing your course. HNE Health will arrange to sight your CRC early in your first semester / trimester so it is essential you obtain this early. Special provision has been provided for Social Work and Nutrition and Dietetics students to provide their Criminal Record Check at the beginning of their second year of study (as they do not attend clinical placement in year one).
