Student Placement

Welcome to Kaiser GSAA Northern California

All incoming students must be represented by an affiliated school and program which has been approved, signed contract on file with Kaiser Permanente Northern California Regional Office.

Please understand that these clinical rotations are only for: Fremont Medical Center, Hayward Sleepy Hollow, San Leandro Medical Center, and Union City Medical Office Building.

No exceptions all students must be fully COVID-19 vaccinated, including booster.

If you are enrolled in school for a higher degree such as BS, MSN, NP, DNP, etc., and requiring a mentor or preceptorship. Then the first step for you as an employee is to contact the student placement coordinator at GSAAStudentOnboarding@kp.org, because we must verify that there is a signed contract agreement on file between Kaiser Permanente and your school. Lastly, what type of assistance you are requiring as well.

Student Placement Process – requests are to be submitted 4 to 6
weeks before the desired start date.
