Clinical Practice

Clinical Practice

During clinical practice, nursing theory and experience in clinical settings are correlated in order to enhance a student's ability to develop critical thinking and clinical judgment skills related to clinical nursing practice. Students rotate through a variety of different health care agencies in order to broaden their experience in the nursing field.

After completing Fundamentals of Nursing IA (ADNR 105), students will have clinical experiences with the direct supervision and assistance of a nursing faculty member at various clinical facilities listed below.

Hospital and community sites for clinical practice are located in the cities of SyracuseUtica,OneidaNorwich and Cooperstown, as well as the neighboring communities of Hamilton, andMorrisville. Community observational experiences are also incorporated within the clinical experience.

The clinical ratio of students per faculty member never exceeds 7-8:1, providing for individual student attention and direction in the clinical setting.

Bus transportation is provided from campus to all clinical sites for a nominal fee. Students must provide their own transportation during the second half of the fourth semester during the "Transition into Practice" clinical experience. This experience is individualized for each senior student.

Admissions Requirements

Nursing is a competitive program that requires students to have a strong background in biology, chemistry and math. All applications are reviewed holistically for admission to the college. It is strongly suggested that SAT and/or ACT scores be submitted.

In order to be admitted directly into the Nursing Program, successful applicants must also take the NLN (http://www.nlnonlinetesting.org/ ) and receive a minimum score of 100. Accepted students who do not successfully score 100 or above on the NLN or who otherwise lack prerequisite academic background may be offered admission into Liberal Arts: Math and Science. These students will be advised by a Nursing Faculty member who can suggest coursework appropriate to the area of interest.

The NLN pre-admission exam is required. A minimum composite score of a 100 is required for admission into the nursing program.
