Accelerated BSN Clinicals at Diverse Health-Care Facilities
Starting second semester of the ABSN program, our Accelerated BSN clinicals let you see first-hand what it’s like to deliver safe and effective care to diverse patient populations. During these clinicals, you’ll work alongside an instructor and seven of your peers in various areas of nursing practice, such as:
- Adult Health
- Community Health
- Family Health
- Medical/Surgical Nursing
- Mental Health
In the fourth and final semester of the ABSN program, you’ll participate in an intensive clinical Capstone course, titled Clinical Role Transition (CRT). During the CRT experience, you’ll be working under the guidance of an experienced nurse preceptor for 120 hours of concentrated clinical experience. CRT provides you with the opportunity to further refine your nursing skills; take an active role in the management of patients assigned to you and your preceptor; and contribute as an integral member of the health-care team. The CRT experience takes place in one of a variety of clinical sites and specialty areas, including medical-surgical nursing, critical care nursing, pediatric nursing or community nursing.
