Computer Access and Training Preparation
We now require computer training for inpatient and clinics separately. If your students will be in the hospital and in the clinics for training, they will need to schedule both training sessions. Inpatient training will be scheduled with Alexandria Moon or Sandi Heine and Ambulatory training will be scheduled with Angela Knox.
To reserve your training date and time so it fits into your schedule, we recommend that you contact the HIT Clinical Education Team
at least two months in advance to schedule a room, as space is limited. It is also the instructor’s responsibility to confirm the student's username and passwords have been obtained prior to arriving for training.
Please have the students contact our Health Information Technology (HIT) department at 406) 751-5700 one week in advance of training sessions
to ensure computer access log-in information is up-to-date before they attend the training. The accounts are disabled if the student has not logged in 60 days.
We encourage the instructor to be present during the training sessions.
Please have the following information available when requesting training:
- Number of students
- Program PN or RN
- Where the students will be placed for the clinical rotations – specifically Brendan House or the medical/surgical floors, Pathways, etc.
