Clinical Placement Services

The Johns Hopkins School of Nursing’s dedicated Clinical Placement Team provides you with appropriate, high-quality placement experiences to meet course objectives, competencies, and regulatory requirements.

Personalized Clinical Placement   

Securing a nursing clinical site is a complex process, which is why at Johns Hopkins School of Nursing we work with you to secure each placement you will need. The Nursing Clinical Placement Team works collaboratively with students and faculty to secure quality placement sites. Typically, we place over 1,200 students per semester (three times per year). We work with you through the entire process, from prompting you to request a placement to answering your questions, verifying clinical clearances, and walking you through clinical expectations. This allows you to focus on coursework and core competencies. 

You will work one-on-one with a clinical placement specialist who will partner with you to secure sites and preceptors for each clinical placement term. Your specialist, assigned to you based on your program of study, working closely with the Track Director, has a network of contacts among health care providers across the country and uses this knowledge to help you identify high-quality placement opportunities. You are an active participant in the placement process: Providing referrals from your local community increases your chances of securing quality sites and preceptors.

Become a Preceptor

Preceptors are engaged clinical professionals who provide supervised clinical rotations while mentoring and educating Johns Hopkins pre-licensure and advanced practice nursing students. Precepting gives health care professionals the opportunity to partner with the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing to translate classroom preparation into hands-on patient care while developing their own teaching and mentoring skills.
