Nursing Science - Beginning Track Program

Clinicals

Do I get to pick where and when I go to clinical?

Nursing Students attend clinical rotations in clinical groups, usually consisting of 8 to 10 people. The Nursing Science Program utilizes a variety of clinical sites within the Oklahoma City metropolitan area appropriate for achievement of the clinical course objectives for the semester. Please note that clinical rotations are determined by the clinical facilities and subject to their availability and needs. Your preference of site and day/time may not be an option offered for your semester.

Students select a clinical group at the time of enrollment. A schedule of clinical site/day/time options is provided ahead of time for students to review. Your enrollment time is assigned once you have submitted all of your immunization records and met clinical requirements. The quicker you complete this, the higher up on the enrollment list you will be.  You will be able to select from the days, times and locations based on what’s available at the time you come to enroll.  If you miss your enrollment time, you will be selecting from what is left to choose from. 

Can I complete the program without doing clinical?

No, clinical rotations are a required part of the program. You must complete and pass the theory and clinical component of each course to be eligible for graduation from the program. Clinical typically require that the student is at the clinical site one (1) day out of each week.

IMPORTANT: Students that are related, married or significant others regarding theory/lab/clinical placement or exams:

These students will not be allowed to enroll in the section of theory/lab/or clinical. Only one can be enrolled in the traditional class, and the other one can be enrolled either in the online section or the evening/weekend section. They will not be allowed to attend theory, lab or clinical in the same group and must take the exams separately. Each individual must be able to show academic integrity on their own merits independently.
