Our nursing students benefit from exceptional clinical experiences beginning in the
sophomore year at multiple clinical sites, from community agencies to a major trauma
The School of Nursing prides itself on providing students with diverse clinical experiences,
including those in local hospitals, large regional medical centers, residential units
for the well elderly, community health and home health agencies, clinics, and early
childhood centers. Experiences in multiple sites enable students to compare various
health-care delivery systems and to learn about care to diverse populations. Transportation
is provided to all group clinical sites outside of Bloomington.
A junior nursing major writes:
My clinical experience has been amazing. I have put my skills to good use and felt
extremely well prepared when I entered the clinical setting. Faculty provide guidance
and feedback that is helping me become a better nurse. I was able to see a C-section
on my first day and after that I was hooked; I couldn't wait to go back for more!
The School of Nursing has an outstanding relationship with many local, as well as
regional, hospitals, medical centers, and clinics. The following list is a sampling
of the clinical organizations available to students.
