Student Placement

If you are an employee who is wanting to go back to school, please check the nursing education webpage under the back to school tab with the link below. To view the page, please be sure to log into the VDT.

Emory Healthcare uses ACEMAPP to streamline the clinical education process. You will be completing a profile and a number of requirements which are necessary for your program. If you have any questions regarding your ACEMAPP account, please contact or 844-223-4292.


Affiliation Agreements

Prior to any clinical rotations or placements, an affiliation agreement must be in place between Emory Healthcare and the student’s school. A list of schools with a current affiliation can be found on the Nursing Professional Development webpage under the Back to School tab. This information is updated regularly. If a student is attending a school that does not have a current affiliation agreement, contact Nursing Professional Development to request. Please note this process can take several months to complete and is not a guarantee.



All nursing student clinical rotations and placements are coordinated through the nursing education department. This standard ensures that current affiliation agreements are in place and required student credentialing is completed. All clinical rotation requests and student credentialing are completed in Acemapp, our online student credentialing program.

The credentialing process includes verification of:

  • Insurance (professional liability and personal health)
  • Requests for ID badges
  • Logon IDs
  • Parking (if applicable)
  • Completion of background check
  • Drug screening
    • Emory students and employees are exempt from the background check and drug screen

Requests for faculty-led groups and preceptors for senior students are made by Nursing Education Coordinator, Susan Jones, to the UDs (or designee).

Emory Healthcare - Student Placement Request

Given our historical tiered approach, as well as the limited number of preceptors, we cannot honor a placement outside of this process. We do our best to accommodate as many students as possible but cannot guarantee placement.

Emory Student Placement Tiers

After clinical placement is approved, the school can place the request in Acemapp. Student credentialing is completed in Acemapp.
