SPA Introduction
Page 1 of 3

Welcome to the Student Passport Alliance (SPA) website

SPA is a collaborative effort by its creators, the four major healthcare organizations in the Great Lakes Bay Region: Bay Regional Medical Center, Covenant HealthCare, MidMichigan Medical Center-Midland, and St. Mary’s of Michigan.  The intention of this endeavor is to enhance, ease and empower student nurses and other healthcare students throughout their orientation experience.

Completing the SPA requirements is a twofold process.  The first part is a review of content required by all four of the “creator” healthcare organizations.  The second part consists of the additional requirements applicable to the relevant creator organization.  To view the specific orientation content contained in the second part, the user will simply click on the applicable healthcare organization’s icon and follow the instructions
