Residency in Clinical Nursing II
This clinical nursing residency is designed for post-baccalaureate nursing students. It consists of clinical experiences in health care facilities that focus on strengthening and broadening the baccalaureate clinical attributes, inpatient care decision making, and psychomotor skills. It is a prerequisite to graduate level clinical specialty programs for students with no work experience. The student engages in an intensive clinical experience ranging from 28-40 hours per week. Specific outcome objectives are identified by the program director of the clinical specialty master’s program track that the student wishes to enter. The student meets regularly with the specialty master’s program director or designee to discuss the clinical experience and identify progress in meeting the competencies. Clinical logs, seminars and reaction papers are requirements for completion.
