Opportunities in Nursing


Preceptorship is a service learning opportunity for students to work one on one with a registered nurse to apply nursing knowledge and to build their clinical nursing skills by caring for individuals and their families. Students may choose the clinical site, professional role model, and specialty area of interest. This opportunity not only allows students to increase their competence but also their confidence in a guided preceptorship setting.
