5 MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR OF FIELD EDUCATION Welcome students, field instructors, task supervisors, field liaisons, and faculty! Field Education is a vital and integral component of our Social Work Education program and is essential for helping students to develop and practice professional competencies and behaviors outlined by the Council for Social Work Education. Through participation in Field Education students have the opportunity to engage in supervised activities that promote the development of professional identity, self-awareness and competent practice. Field Education is identified by the CSWE as being the signature pedagogy of social work education. It is the specific method utilized to prepare and transition students to become Professional Social Work Practitioners. This Field Education Manual was developed to help you to have a successful experience with our Field Education Program by providing you with important information about our program structure, curriculum, policies, and protocol. It is intended to be a resource and reference guide for your participation in our program. I welcome any suggestions and feedback you have as to how we can make our program and manual more useful. Thank you to all of the field instructors, agencies, and faculty who help to create a quality Field Education Program for our students! Sincerely, DeVonne Allen, LCSW, MSEd Director of Field Education

I. PROCEDURES STUDENT ADMISSION AND PLACEMENT PROCESS Field Application Upon admission to the MSW Program students will receive an electronic Field Education Application which will be used to determine student s readiness for field placement, program track, and to match students with an appropriate field agency. Criteria for Student Placement in Field 1. Confirmed Admission and acceptance to the Nyack College MSW program. 2. Commitment to professional values and goals. 3. Academic capacity. 4. Ability to meet student expectations.

FIELD EDUCATION PROGRAM OPTIONS Traditional 2-Year Track Students admitted to the Traditional 2-Year Track are required to complete 450 field hours of practice in the Foundation Year and 600 field hours of practice in the Advanced Year. Advanced Standing Track Students admitted to the Advanced Standing Track are required to complete 600 field hours of practice. One-Year Residency Track The One-Year Residency Track is designed for students who are already employed in a social service setting for at least one year and are able to complete the required internship hours in their place of employment. The total of 900 internship hours is completed during the Advanced Year, 450 hours each semester, 32 hours per week. The employment agency must meet the criteria for employment based internships. Agency Placement Process and Procedures The Field Coordinator, in consultation with the Field Education Faculty, is responsible for arranging the field placements of all students. Students should not contact an agency directly without approval from the Field Faculty. Agencies may not arrange placements with students without the student going through the formal placement process. 1. A Field Education Faculty will contact each admitted applicant to schedule a consultation meeting to discuss field placement interests, needs, and opportunities. 2. The field faculty with input from the student will identify agencies of interest. Agencies can be identified from the Field Education Directory of Agency Placements. In addition a student can suggest an agency. If a student suggests and agency, the field faculty will contact the agency personnel to determine if the agency meets the Field Education Program's criteria. 3. The Field Faculty will contact each agency identified to determine which agencies are prepared to supervise a student placement for the upcoming semester.

10 4. The Director of Field Education will subsequently inform the student of an agency to interview with for potential placement. Students are responsible for contacting the agency Field Instructors and arranging for an interview and/or meeting. 5. The Field Faculty will follow up with the agency and notify the student of the agency s decision to accept the student as an intern. Assignment and placement of students are made on the basis of educational needs as determined by Field Faculty with input from students. All placements are made considering the needs of the student, the educational opportunities available at the agencies, and other specific concerns related to location and special needs of students. Interview Process This Interview process serves the following functions: 1. To assist the student in the functions and expectations of the field setting. 2. To give agency Field Instructors the opportunity to meet and to assess the student's suitability for the agency setting. 3. To allow both the student and the agency Field Instructor to begin to formulate activities. Some agencies may prepare reading lists that will help the student prepare for the placement. Use of such a list is strongly encouraged by the faculty. The field agency is under no obligations to accept the student until the Agency Agreement Form is signed. (See Appendix) Once a placement has been finalized, both the field instructor and the student will receive a letter from the Field Education Program confirming the field placement assignment and the date for the commencement of their internship. The Agency Agreement Form is to be signed after the Field Coordinator, the Field Instructor and the Student have reached an agreement. The Agency Agreement Form is to be returned to the Field Coordinator before the first week of the commencement of the field internship. Field Instructors are expected to retain a copy for agency records. The selection of agencies and Field Instructors for Field Instruction is an important part of the Field Education Program s educational

11 planning. The Field Education Program carries the responsibility for determining the suitability for student training and works closely with interested agencies and potential field supervisors in this process.

The ability and willingness of the agency to provide in the required competencies and practice behaviors will determine whether a site is selected as a practicum placement. Criteria for Selection of Agencies 1. The agency's orientation and objectives must be educational rather than "apprenticeship." 2.
