Welcome to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital/Advocate Lutheran General Children's Hospital!  We appreciate your interest in partnering with our facility for your clinical affiliation.  As a twice recognized Magnet Hospital, it is our goal to promote the growth of professional nursing practice.

Entering Into Partnership

Each Graduate student's educational institution is required to enter into a legal contract with Advocate Health Care and Advocate Lutheran General Hospital/Advocate Children's Hospital - Park Ridge by completing an Advocate Standard Clinical Affiliation Agreement (ASCAA) prior to making arrangements for a clinical affiliation. The ASCAA may be obtained by contacting the Clinical Affiliation Representative at (847) 723-5081. Formal acceptance of the ASCAA may be a lengthy process (up to 6 months); therefore it is recommended that initiation of the contract begin early. Although securing the agreement is the first step in starting our partnership, it does not guarantee a clinical rotation.

Clinical Affiliations Handbook: Everything you need to know about partnering with Advocate Health Care and Advocate Lutheran General Hospital/Advocate Children's Hospital on clinical affiliation.

  • The Handbook provides key information regarding our Standards of Behavior, Culture of Safety, Joint Commission and National Patient Safety Goals, Risk Management, and Infection Control practices, as well as  a campus map and travel directions.


Please note, the "Acceptance of Clinical Affiliation Handbook Form", is REQUIRED to be signed by all graduate students and faculty.

Faculty Guide: Describes the faculty requirements and responsibilities.

  • It also contains a Instructor Check List, a useful tool for instructors to facilitate completion of all requirements.  The Instructor Checklist is NOT REQUIRED to be handed in to the Clinical Affiliation Representative
