Undergraduate and graduate nursing students engage in direct care clinical activities in health care institutions throughout the state. Additionally, health sciences students participate in internships in agencies across the United States.
Partnerships with hospitals, clinics, long-term care facilities, schools, community health centers, and psychiatric institutions are vital to the success of our programs, providing the entire spectrum of opportunities for clinical practice. Support from partnering institutions provides resources to enable our nursing and allied health students to achieve designated program outcomes.
