    I am looking into a few nurse midwifery programs. A very important consideration for me is clinical site availability. How do you assist students in finding a clinical site? For example, do you have lists for regions of clinical sites that have been used by previous students? What are the requirements to qualify as a clinical site and as a preceptor?

    • Veronica Olivo said:

      Hi Janis,
      Thank you for your question. The program is set up for students to choose their site according to the qualifications and credentials set by the University. The clinical site coordinators can provide a list of sites previously used however that does not guarantee that a site will accept students.
