Clinical Scholars Program

The Clinical Scholars Program is offered in conjunction with area health care facilities. Qualified BSN and CNL students are given the opportunity to complete their emphasis practicum under the guidance of a clinical preceptor, receive tuition support for their final year and, upon graduation, work for one to three years in the supporting health care institution. Students who have earned a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 and who are enrolled in their final practicum course are notified of their eligibility just prior to the beginning of their final semester of study.
