Leadership and Education for Practice – Coming Fall 2022



In clinical rotations, students will gain direct experience treating patients under the guidance of a skilled nurse preceptor.

CSB/SJU graduate students will build their clinical skills and confidence as a practitioner, while preceptors develop their mentorship abilities and assist the next generation of health care employees. This partnership, along with ongoing interaction with faculty and your advisor and classmates will provide a deep level of practical application, leadership development and insight into specialty areas.

Students should embrace the opportunity to gain as much as they can from their clinical preceptors and fully participate in the learning experience.
