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.
