Faculty Tasks and Orientation Requirements

PART 1—Faculty Tasks to Complete for Students

After your student/s has been accepted for placement at Gwinnett Medical Center you are responsible to manage their student/s requirements.

The student placement coordinator works directly only with faculty and will inform the faculty when the student is cleared to start.

NOTE: If you will come on site either to visit or to supervise your student/s during their experience at GMC, you need to also follow the directions in Part 2 on this webpage.

Faculty manages and processes their student/s placement requirements as explained below:

Timetable* for notification and processing – to be emailed to the student placement coordinator Linda Horst,

  1. Student/names a minimum of 2 weeks prior to start date.
  2. Student/s paperwork no later than 2 weeks prior to start date.
  3. Advanced Practice Nursing (APN) students and Physician Assistant (PA) student/s 60-90 days prior to start must submit the Clinical Process Form signed by the supervising physician. All other requirements for the student are due no later than 2 weeks prior to start date.

Part 2 - Faculty Orientation Requirements for Onsite Faculty

The following pertains to faculty who will visit or remain onsite during their student/s placement. Faculty who will not come onsite do not need to do Part 2.

Every new academic year you will need to sign the appropriate Faculty Training agreement (see below).

Board of Regents Schools (all schools affiliated with the GA Board of Regents University System):

NON-Board of Regents Schools:

Initially and annually you will have Computer Based Learning (CBLs) assigned to complete.

  • CBLs are done in the Gwinnett Learning Management System called myNetLearning (myNL), while students do their CBLs on the GMC external website.
  • To obtain access to myNL send the last four numbers of your Social Security number to and your access to the system will be requested. 
  • Later a myNL login and password will be sent to you along with directions on how and what materials to complete in myNL. (The student placement coordinator will also send additional access codes to nursing and pharmacy instructors who may need to function within the hospital accessing medications and supplies.)
    • Once you have your myNL login you may access the myNL system by clicking here.

You will need Internet Explorer Version 11 or Google Chrome on a PC only. This program will not work on a Mac.

  • Then, simply log in using the login/password using the specific emailed instructions sent to you with the login/password.
