Hands-on learning is an integral part of our BSN program. All undergraduate nursing programs require clinicals, but our programs are different from the rest.
Clinicals Begin the First Semester
Our students earn more than 1,300 clinical hours. Employers representing the nation's top health care institutions take notice of our experienced graduates.
Students Learn in Top Health Care Systems
Clinical learning takes place in more than 200 Cleveland community agencies and organizations each semester, including:
- University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center: The largest biomedical research center in Ohio and one of the top 20 in the country
- Cleveland Clinic: The second-largest medical group practice in the world and the largest hospital in Ohio; one of five U.S. hospitals designated "The Best of the Best" by U.S. News & World Report
- VA Northeast Ohio Healthcare System: Recognized for more programs of clinical excellence than any other VA medical center in the United States
- MetroHealth Medical Center: A regional referral hospital that is one of only 19 Level 1 trauma centers, with a burn unit and a rehabilitation facility specializing in spinal cord injuries.
