COVID-19 Update

Effective Monday, May 18, 2020, we have opened up our student educational experiences to a limited number of students and trainees.
Information will continue to evolve and we will update this information as it becomes available. Thank you for your understanding.

You must review the COVID-19 Student, Instructor and Trainee Requirements

Student Affiliation Program

This is a formal program of study in which the student is currently enrolled and is seeking a clinical rotation, clerkship or externship experience at any Kalispell Regional Healthcare (KRH) facility. An affiliation agreement with the school is required. Please contact the student coordinator if you have any questions about an agreement for your school.

An affiliation agreement needs to be in place to go forward with a student placement for educational rotations. This can take some time. Please contact us as soon as possible to ensure an agreement is current and in place well in advance of an educational experience. This cannot be done by the individual departments and must be approved by the Student Affiliations department.

KRH Preceptor/Staff Nurse Evaluation

Please provide feedback for our staff by filling out the KRH Preceptor/Staff Nurse Evaluation after your experiences. We value your input and want to provide the best clinical experiences we can. Timely input can help us quickly remedy any issues and also gives us the opportunity to recognize outstanding staff for all they do.

This is how we ensure you have the correct badge and computer access for each rotation.

5. Fill out the Background Check Release Form below and submit it with a copy of your background check or have your school complete the date section and the bottom of the form to submit.

If you are a medical student your school can also submit a letter of good standing instead of the background check stating that the background check has been run with all of the Kalispell Regional Healthcare requirements and has been cleared. Either way you, the student, will need to fill out the Background Check Release Form and turn it in to the KRH student or medical student/residency coordinator.

In some cases the school may not provide a background check for students. If this is the case, the student will be responsible for providing a national criminal background check along with exclusion database list; (Office of Inspector General/OIG ), national sexual offender list;( and the individual entity exclusion records in SAM, the U.S. General Services Administration; ( that must cover the past 7 years, and must be run within 6 months prior to the start of the student’s program that will require clinical rotations. Please check with your school contact to see if this is your responsibility to avoid delays in starting your student experience with Kalispell Regional Healthcare.

Any documents that need to be filled out (not including the documents that were for review only) will need to be returned to the KRH student coordinator at least 30 to 60 days prior to the start of a rotation. Feel free to scan and email the documents, or if you prefer you can fax them to the secure fax line in the student coordinator's office.

5. After all your requirements have been turned in and approved by the student coordinator, set up an appointment to be issued your student ID badge. If you are a current employee you will still need a student ID badge. You are prohibited from using your employee badge while participating as a student for student rotations.
