Accelerated BSN Clinicals at local Health Care Facilities

Clinical practice is a core component of any nursing education. As an Accelerated BSN student, you will gain meaningful nursing experience at some of the best hospitals and health care facilities in Cincinnati, Cleveland, or Columbus. During clinicals, you and a small group of peers will work alongside experienced nurses to gain a real-world understanding of how nursing theory applies to the care of individuals, families, and communities.

Clinical Practice Areas

While in our 16-month ABSN program, you will complete supervised clinical practice in a variety of settings across the health care continuum. And through this diverse practice, you will learn how to effectively interact with patients from all walks of life in disciplines such as:

  • Adult Health
  • Community Health
  • Mental Health
  • Obstetrics
  • Pediatrics

By the time you graduate from nursing school, the diversity of our Accelerated BSN clinicals will have prepared you to sit for the NCLEX-RN® licensure exam. You will also have a good understanding of what nursing discipline best fits your career goals.

Clinical Placement

hospital-clinicalsWhile we cannot guarantee where your Accelerated BSN clinicals will take place, you can expect to gain unprecedented nursing experiences with any of our health care partners, which include OhioHealth and Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, and TriHealth, Mercy Health, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, and The Christ Hospital Health Network in Cincinnati.

Overall, clinicals are a great way to develop your confidence in terms of applying your individual nursing skills and working collaboratively with others in interdisciplinary patient care situations. Furthermore, you will understand how to provide safe, competent nursing care within the context of a specific health care facility and state law.

You might also want to think of your clinicals as informal job interviews. After all, you’ll be working with some of the best health care providers in Ohio—individuals who can serve as a professional reference or future employer.
