Thank you for your interest in the Ontario CLRI’s PREP LTC initiative. Please enroll your LTC home in PREP LTC below. By enrolling in PREP LTC, LTC homes will have access to:
Eligibility for Backfill Funding for Preceptors Time
If your LTC home has or will have students whose placements end between April 1, 2022, and March 31st, 2023, regardless of the start date, your home will be eligible for preceptor backfill funding.
Type of student placements eligible for backfill funding for preceptors' time:
Ontario LTC homes are eligible to receive PREP LTC funding to backfill a team member who spends dedicated time precepting and mentoring PSW or nursing students under their supervision, outside of the regular duties undertaken in the team member’s role.
*Funding is available for placements for internationally educated nurses (IEN) participating in the College of Nurses of Ontario’s Supervised Practice Experience Partnership Program.
Eligible LTC homes:
By completing this form you are enrolling your LTC home in PREP LTC for Year 2.
Once you complete this form and click submit, you will receive an email with a copy of your responses and a UNIQUE LTC HOME LINK FOR STUDENT REGISTRATION.
If your LTC home has been hosting clinical student placements or when your home begins hosting clinical student placements, you will need to have your students register in PREP LTC to be eligible for funding.
Please send this link to each of the students completing individual placements in your LTC home. Each student placed in your LTC home must use this link to register themselves, in order for your home to receive funding.
We recommend that homes have students register in PREP LTC during their orientation sessions. Students indicating their placement end date to be between April 1, 2022 and March 31, 2023, will be included in Year 2 of funding. Students indicating a later placement end date will be considered in Year 3 of funding.
If you are no longer able to contact students who ended their placement in your home between April 1, 2022 and March 31, 2023, please contact program staff at email@example.com.
Student placements must have been supported by a preceptor or mentor in your LTC home (not a clinical supervisor from the college or university).
Once submitted, funding will be processed and sent to your LTC home by April 28, 2023, through direct deposit. If you have not submitted an EFT form to receive funds in the past, please download and fill out the EFT form and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org to facilitate receiving funds directly deposited to your account.
Prior to having students register, please confirm with your finance department that these funds may be used for backfilling preceptors during the 2021-2022 fiscal year (April 1 2022 - March 31, 2023).
