Mount Union BSN Clinical Rotations

Students pursuing Mount Union’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Program will complete roughly 10% more practicum training hours than some other nursing programs in Northeast Ohio. Students will experience the role of nursing in various areas. 

Areas of Nursing

  • Medical-surgical
  • Critical care
  • Long-term care
  • Nursing homes
  • Pediatrics
  • Psychiatric mental health
  • Labor and delivery
  • Community health settings 

During a nursing student’s senior year, they will complete a preceptorship, which will allow him/her to work with a professional nurse. The professional nurse will serve as the nursing student’s mentor, guiding and transitioning the student into the nursing profession. 

Nursing students will have the opportunity to rotate to various clinical agencies in the area in order to gain experience in the nursing field. Contrary to popular belief, clinical rotations take place at more locations than just hospitals.
