How Clinical Rotations Work
You get to experience what your typical shift as a registered nurse might be like during your clinicals. Every day as a nurse can be different, but clinicals provide the opportunity for you to work with real health care professionals in a local health care facility, helping you to understand what treating patients is like.
Though you will be under the supervision of clinical instructors, this portion of the Harding ABSN program is where you’ll put into action, in a live setting, the skills you’ve learned in your labs and the procedures you’ve learned in your coursework.
Real World Experience
These real-world nursing situations are what will build your confidence — that you know what it takes to be a nurse — and prepare you to interview for your first nursing position.
