ACEMAPP Education was originally developed by the Michigan Health Council in partnership with five hospitals in Southeast Michigan to alleviate a shortage of clinical rotations spots for nursing students. Since its launch, ACEMAPP has provided schools and clinical sites with an easy to use online tool to onboard and manage students, staff, preceptors, faculty, and observers for clinical education nationwide.
This recruitment service is unique because as a nonprofit, ACEMAPP Careers works on behalf of its member organizations to provide affordable and effective sourcing tools to support the recruitment needs of healthcare employers in diverse settings and communities throughout the United States.
