Clinical rotations are an essential component of a nurse’s education — but securing placements can prove challenging for students who may not have the time or resources to build a network of clinical contacts on their own.
Nursing@Georgetown’s clinical placement team partners with students to secure clinical sites and preceptors near their home communities in alignment with their program track and that meet the high standards of Georgetown University School of Nursing & Health Studies (NHS).
The team consists of placements specialists, Clinical Faculty Advisors, and NHS faculty members, all of whom are dedicated to helping students develop their abilities as health care providers and providing one-on-one support through each placement experience.

Each of the program specializations offered through Nursing@Georgetown has its own clinical course requirements and objectives. For specific details, refer to each program’s curriculum.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Students may need to travel a significant distance, relocate, or delay their plan of study if placements are not secured for particular semesters. If this is the case for you, the clinical placement team will work with you to avoid any delays. Students’ ability to identify potential sites and preceptors in their communities is integral to this process.
