Vanderbilt University School of Nursing views clinical placements as more than an educational requirement. These rich practica experiences are integral to your advanced nursing education and career preparedness. Securing a clinical site and preceptor is a shared responsibility between student, faculty and the school’s Clinical Placement staff. Clinical placements can often be arranged in the student's home area, provided a suitable agency and preceptor are available.
Due to State Board of Nursing or State Higher Education requirements, clinical placements may not be available in every location. We make every reasonable effort to accommodate a student’s placement requests.
