FAQs

Can I access Big Brain from home?

  • Yes (see instructions on the Student Checklist)

Who needs to sign my OHSU ID Badge form?

What if I was already placed at OHSU? Do I still need to complete the training again?

  • Epic training will need to be completed again ONLY if you have been away from Epic at OHSU for one year or longer.
  • Glucometer training must be completed annually.
  • Supply Pyxis and Med Pyxis will need to be requested each term you are at OHSU.

I'm an OHSU employee. What do I need to do as a "Student"?

  • Even if you are currently an OHSU employee with a badge, you will also need a badge that represents your role as a Nursing Student. As a nursing student, your badge may give you access to different units/clinics than would otherwise be appropriate for you in your role as an employee.
  • If you are current on your glucometer competency you can use your OHSU access code as usual.
  • You may use your OHSU employee Supply Pyxis access as a student.

What should I do if I miss my glucometer class?

  • Contact Melanie Blehm for help with rescheduling this training. If you show up late to glucometer class, you will be asked to reschedule due to time constraints.

What should I do if I miss my Epic class?

  • Contact Melanie Blehm to reschedule. You may be required to take the full nursing training at OHSU. This will often lead to an additional 16 hours of training.

I'm coming to OHSU from out-of-state, am a re-entry student, or a graduate student. Do I follow this same process?

  • No, please contact Mary Stock for guidance. Though many of the checklist requirements will apply to you, the process will differ a bit.

I forgot my badge! Can I still come to my clinical site?

  • No, you may not come to your clinical site without your ID Badge. You may go to Parking to get a temporary badge that will suffice for the day. 

How do I get my account IDs or passwords?

  • Contact your faculty. Typically, weeks before you have arrived to OHSU, your account access was requested and routed back to your school coordinator/faculty.

I'm having trouble logging in to Epic, Supply Pyxis, or Pharmacy Pyxis. Who do I contact?

  • Contact Melanie Blehm first for assistance. She will help verify that you have the correct info and then can triage your request if needed.
