Abstract—Practicum placement for nursing students is a complex process due to the hierarchical nature of steps involved, evolving underlying data and intricate business rules. The process is further complicated when facilities are sparsely located and students must travel for their practicums. We have applied business intelligence tools to build a framework which uses an integrated web-based approach to address these issues and provides interactive web forms for students, practicum coordinator and managers; in addition, a reporting dashboard with drill-down and drill-through capabilities is provided for analysis and reporting. The proposed system reduces the effort needed for managing practicums, provides embedded controls to mitigate errors such as over-subscribing and duplications, auto-generates notifications, and provides readily accessible reports with up-to-date information.
