Experience in a clinical setting is an integral part of College of Nursing and Health Sciences program. You will work side-by-side with nursing faculty and the best medical professionals in the region. You will benefit from the knowledge and hands-on learning that is only possible through applying theoretical skills in practice.
Clinical experiences begin in a spacious, well-equipped, and technologically advanced skills lab/ clinic/ and clinical simulation area. You will have many computer-assisted supports available through-out the curriculum and are encouraged to use the skills lab on an ongoing basis to continue developing the technical skills for practice.
Clinical courses begin in the second
semester of the professional nursing program, typically during the second semester
of the sophomore year.
Clinical experiences are conducted in a wide variety of acute care and community-based clinical sites in Eau Claire, Chippewa Falls and Marshfield. Practicums take place in public health departments, extended care and residential facilities, and schools.For more information on clinical affiliations
