Your Guide to Work-Based and Service Learning

As clinical placements become more limited, service learning can be an opportunity for students to experience the health science culture, environment, and expectations. When either or both are included as part of the health science program of study, workplace learning/service learning provide students with:

  • Improved academic achievement
  • Exploration of career options
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Real workplace experience and work readiness skills
  • Adult role models
  • Observation and practice of employability skills

Work Based Learning Features

This resource contains guides for the worksite coordinator and supervisor or preceptor and 24 rotations guides for specialty and subspecialty areas. These rotation guides will help focus the student’s time in a clinical area. Many careers in healthcare require some level of postsecondary preparation, early decisions that include workplace learning experiences will significantly benefit the student’s future.

Work Based Learning Guide Project Overview

Through this request for proposal (RFP), NCHSE is seeking to revise the current NCHSE Work-based Learning (WBL) Guide to align with the National Health Science Standards (May 2019) and the new definition of work-based learning offered by Perkins V: “sustained interactions with industry or community professionals in real workplace settings, to the extent practicable, or simulated environments at an educational institution that foster in depth, firsthand engagement with the tasks required in a given career field, that are aligned to curriculum and instruction.” The developer(s) will create a concept, design, and plan a comprehensive interactive guide for use by health science educators and their students.

If interested, respond by January 14, 2021 by submitting an electronic proposal as outlined in the RFP.
