What Are Nursing Clinicals?
Clinicals provide real-life, hands-on patient care experiences for bachelor's of nursing students. Clinicals can take place in a variety of healthcare settings such as hospitals, long-term care facilities, and many other medical settings and are under supervision by licensed nursing professionals.
You'll complete tasks such as documenting patient medical histories and nursing care plans; taking vitals and performing assessments; and administering medications—all with guidance and support from your supervisor.
You'll also have recurring team meetings with your supervisor and other nursing students at the start and end of each shift.
