Project-Based Practicums

Clinical experience is the heart of the nursing profession.  At Upper Iowa University, we have designed clinicals so you can meet several goals:

  • Achieve course objectives                                     
  • Reach your career goals
  • Enable you to continue your other important activities
  • Give you opportunities to practice the leadership skills you learn throughout the curriculum in practicum settings.

Practicum experiences are arranged cooperatively with a clinical facility and mentor, guided by a faculty member.  Community health practicum projects are completed in settings that are selected by the student.  These are project-based experiences where students work collaboratively with faculty, peers, and a selected agency.
