Nursing is a practice-driven profession. At Case Western Reserve University, you’ll put your skills to practice with clinicals that begin just three weeks into your first semester. And you’ll clock more than 1,300 hours of clinical experience by the time you graduate.
Where will you learn?
- The Health Education Campus: A collaboration between Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic, the campus brings together students from our nursing, dental and medical schools to learn with—and from—each other.
- Clinical sites: Students engage in clinical learning at more than 200 community agencies and organizations each semester in some of the nation’s top health care settings.
- Capstone projects: A community-based immersion experience allows students to analyze concepts of health and health care, health policy and finance, culture and ethics.
- Service projects: Nursing students provide community service in response to community-identified concerns and explore their roles as citizens and health care professionals.
- Cleveland schools: Nursing students provide health screenings and health education to local children.
Why the emphasis on hands-on learning? Because it’s in those real patient encounters that you’ll gain the tools, confidence and context you’ll need to be a nursing leader.
When you graduate, you’ll be supremely qualified and, as Dr. Suess says, “Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.”
