Step 4: Turn in the three completed forms (listed below) to your school representative or faculty/instructor.

**By signing these forms, you accept responsibility and accountability for the information presented in the orientation modules.**

Once you are assigned a healthcare facility for clinical, you will also do an annual orientation (different than the online modules) that is specific to that healthcare facility.  It's your responsibility to receive a unit/dept specific orientation on or before your first day of clinical as well.  This form is found on each healthcare facility student page; please visit the website of the healthcare facility you are visiting for more information.
