Xavier’s Clinical Partnerships

Based in Cincinnati, Ohio, Xavier University has a reputation in the local health care community for graduating nurses who are leaders at the bedside—and beyond. Xavier nurses have the skills and experience to effectively advocate for their patients in interdisciplinary situations.

Given the value health care providers place on Xavier nurses, we’ve been able to establish clinical partnerships with several highly respected hospital networks in Greater Cincinnati—giving our nursing students access to some of the best clinical placements in the area.

Our strong nursing presence in Cincinnati has also paved the way for our university to secure quality clinical partnerships for our accelerated nursing students in Columbus and Cleveland. So, no matter where you complete your ABSN program clinicals, you’ll have the respect of those around you.
