Every nurse needs to spend time in the classroom. But nothing compares to real patient care experiences. At Edinboro, you’ll have many opportunities for hands-on learning that coincides with your academic coursework. Here are a few ways you’ll get valuable patient experience:
Simulation labs provide a risk-free environment to assess your skills and knowledge on frequent-care scenarios and to prepare you for high-risk scenarios you might not experience as a student in the clinical setting.
Clinical rotations with partnering healthcare organizations.
Capstone practicum during your senior year lets you work side-by-side with a licensed registered nurse in a clinical area of interest.
Summer nurse internships allow you to stay engaged in nursing over the summer, hone your skills and knowledge and initiate a relationship with a future employer.
There’s never been a more exciting time to be a nurse. The field is wide open, with a variety of jobs and specialties that allow you to challenge yourself and pursue your professional interests in many unique settings. But you don’t have to stop with your bachelor’s degree. A significant number of our graduates choose to go on to graduate school or post-graduate certification programs, which open the doors to even more possibilities such as nurse practitioner, certified registered-nurse anesthetist, nurse educator, clinical nurse specialist, nurse manager and nursing informatics specialist.
