Nursing and Health Care Leadership

Leadership Practicum

Vanderbilt University School of Nursing views leadership practica as more than an educational requirement. These rich practica experiences are integral to your advanced nursing education and career preparedness. Securing a practice site and preceptor is a shared responsibility between student and faculty. Leadereship practica are arranged in the student’s home area, often in the student’s own organization provided a suitable preceptor is available.


Due to State Board of Nursing or State Higher Education requirements, leadership practica may not be available in every location. We make every reasonable effort to accommodate a student’s requests.
