Xavier’s Impact on Local Health Care

Xavier University has a reputation in the local health care community for graduating nursing students who are leaders at the bedside. In fact, top hospitals and health care agencies across the Greater Cincinnati area value Xavier nurses for their ability to effectively advocate for their patients in interdisciplinary situations.

Hospital Partners

Health care providers appreciate the rigorous, innovative nature of our nursing programs, which is why several of the best hospitals in Cincinnati welcome our students into their facilities for clinical practice. As an ABSN student, you will gain unprecedented clinical experience at one of the following:

  • TriHealth: Operating as the fourth largest employer in Cincinnati, this nonprofit health care system offers clinical, educational, and preventive services via five hospitals and more than 125 sites of care.
  • Mercy Health: As the fourth largest employer in the ‘Buckeye State’, this Catholic health care ministry operates 23 hospitals and more than 450 care locations across Ohio and Kentucky.
  • Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center: Among the oldest, most distinguished pediatric hospitals in the country, this hospital provides comprehensive clinical services, from the treatment of complex conditions to well-child care.
  • The Christ Hospital Health Network: Comprising an acute care hospital and more than 100 locations, this nonprofit health network serves the community through affordable, quality care.

Please note that clinical practice opportunities for ABSN students vary. Therefore, we cannot guarantee placement within a specific health care network.
