The students have “clinicals,” or clinical experiences, in hospitals, home care agencies and other health care related sites in the Buffalo area, where they apply classroom and lab learning to the clinical patients we encounter in various settings. These experiences are ongoing throughout the upper division nursing curriculum.
The School of Nursing (SON) works collaboratively with health systems in Western New York to provide clinical practicum experiences for nursing students. The practicum provides hands-on experience in caring for patients across the life span and across health care setting. Students benefit from mentoring, role-modeling and engagement with health care professionals in developing the professional nursing role.
