What is Clinical Placement?
Clinical placement is the required clinical education component of Carson-Newman’s Family Nurse Practitioner degree and Post-Master’s Certificate programs. Clinicals work in tandem with the classroom-based coursework to prepare you for your future as a Family Nurse Practitioner providing primary care in the field.

How Does This Benefit You?
The Carson-Newman Department of Nursing believes you are only as successful as your training, which is why we have taken the stress out of the clinical placement process. As an online Family Nurse Practitioner student, you get the benefit of having a clinical placement specialist who will work with Carson-Newman to source and secure a quality placement site and preceptor for most of your graduate-level clinical rotations. With this peace of mind, you can focus on your studies and building competency instead of worrying about clinicals.
