Clinical Site and Preceptorship Requirements

For the clinical component of the Program, students are required to secure preceptors and complete their rotations in a primary care setting such as a physician’s office or clinic. Acute care physicians or nurse practitioners who work as hospitalists are not acceptable Preceptors since this is a primary care program and not an acute care Program. Primary care providers who work full time in long-term care facilities such as nursing homes are also not acceptable. To ensure the correct facility and Preceptor are selected, students are encouraged to speak with the Chair of the Nursing Department before finalizing their preceptor agreement.

All clinical clearance documentation and preceptorship agreements must be submitted to the Nursing Department by the established due dates to prevent a delay in progressing to clinicals.
