Clinicals that are early, often and at some of the best hospitals anywhere

CWRU nursing student

For future nurses, clinical experiences are key. It’s that practice that transforms students into highly prepared nurses. At Case Western Reserve University, that turning point comes early… and practice comes often.

CWRU nurses clock more than 1,300 hours of clinical experience. That’s double the national average. And they start clinicals just three weeks into their first semester. What’s more is that the magic happens when our students practice in one of the nation’s most advanced medical communities, right here in Cleveland’s University Circle.
