Clinical Placement Services

  • Provide a nuanced assessment of students’ professional goals to identify a preceptor and an ideal work environment in their local area (e.g. hospitals, community clinics, or private practice).
  • Work closely with students to identify academic areas of interest and connect them with clinical expertise that is the best fit (family nursing, neonatal nursing, pediatric nursing or midwifery).
