Welcome to the Massachusetts Centralized Nursing Clinical Placement System

The Massachusetts Centralized Nursing Clinical Placement System (MCNCPS) is a collaborative project of the Board of Higher Education (BHE) and the Massachusetts Center for Nursing (MCN).

The MCNCPS software, developed by the Massachusetts Board of Higher Education, is a stand-alone Internet-based software tool designed to facilitate the display, scheduling, and management of clinical nursing education placements between health care organizations and nursing education programs. This system is regionally-based and has been created through the input of regional nursing education and practice leaders from across the state.

The MCNCPS placement list (see Regional Placement links at left) is available for public viewing. Only authorized users may request a clinical placement or make changes to the database.

The MCNCPS has an Operating Framework and a set of defined guidelines based on collaboration, cooperation and teamwork.
