What We Do

The Hawaii State Center for Nursing leads the coordination of the Hawai‘i Clinical Placement Collaborative (HCPC) comprised of Hawai‘i schools of nursing and clinical partners and supports the regional use of CCPS.  This includes the coordination of partner enrollment and facilitation of collaborative engagement by partners through participation in HCPC state collaborative meetings aimed at strengthening clinical placements capacity in the State and responding to changing trends in healthcare settings and nursing education in Hawai‘i.

We are currently completing Summer 2022 placements!

To date, the HCPC has collectively established more than 31,000 nursing clinical education placements in our partner facilities.  We remain grateful for the continued collaboration of our clinical and education partners in their support of nursing education and the Hawai‘i nursing workforce.

Guiding Principles

  • TRUST – Establish and maintain the highest levels of system integrity.
  • MUTUAL RESPECT – Treat everyone as a valued colleague
  • EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE – Ensure all students are enabled to realize their potential.
  • COMMUNITY – Uphold a sense of “oneness” and cooperation with all stakeholders.
  • OPEN & HONEST COMMUNICATION – Commitment to listen and share ideas


Greater efficiency is achieved through the elimination of redundancy and scheduling conflicts by utilizing one system that all coordinators access within a prescribed time period, creating an equitable, transparent, automated, and consolidated environment for both clinical and academic partners to secure and track nursing clinical placements.

“I think one’s feelings waste themselves in words, they ought all to be distilled into actions and into actions which bring results.”
