Clinical & Internship Placements

Clinical & Internship Placements

The Manning College of Nursing and Health Sciences uses a number of tools to help you with the placement process. For health clearances, FERPA Waivers, and background checks students must use Complio. For placements, students must use InPlace Smart Placement Solutions. Your clearance information submitted and verified by Complio will be integrated with InPlace.


Complio is an online application by American Data Bank where you will submit documents to verify your health clearances, your FERPA waiver form, and background checks. All data that has been submitted through your Complio account will automatically integrate with your InPlace account.

Introduction to Complio
