Graduate Clinical Experiences

A Hands-On Approach

In the Ida V. Moffett School of Nursing, you'll do more than learn theory. Clinical experiences play a significant role in your education. The hands-on experiences you will receive prepare you to practice in a specialty role to meet the health care needs of individuals and families across the life span.

The goal with the program is that our students can leave here and be ready to practice anywhere they want to practice, no matter where that may be.

Whatever your specialty, we will design experiences that help you answer your calling. For example, in the nurse anesthesia program, students spend 16 months focused on clinical experiences in a variety of metropolitan and rural settings in almost any specialty. Every eight weeks students rotate to new clinical sites, giving them an opportunity to experience a variety of settings with many different types of equipment. Regardless of the degree you pursue, much of your time will be spent actively working in the field.

Because we've educating nurses for more than 90 years, our administrators and professors have deep relationships with clinical sites throughout the country. We are able to help students find placements, wherever they are, in settings where they can get the hands-on experience they need.
