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 Teri Steffens 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 Angela and Teri at least two months in advance to schedule a room, as space is limited. It is also the instructor’s responsibility to obtain the student's username and password information 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.

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.
    Instructors need to fill out the Instructor Personal Information Form prior to each semester or quarter to ensure that students have the correct Meditech training and access. This form should be filled out only once and can be found on the Paperwork, Documentation and Requirement Information for Instructors page.
