The Johns Hopkins School of Nursing has a dedicated Clinical Placement Team to provide 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 and typically, we place over 1,200 students per semester (3 times/year). This process allows you to focus on the coursework and the core competencies that will direct your placement experience. As an active participant in the placement process, providing referrals from your local community increases your chances of securing quality sites and preceptors. We will work with you through the entire process from prompting you to request a placement to answering your questions, verifying your clinical clearances and walking you through the clinical expectations.
You will work one-on-one with a clinical placement specialist who will partner with you to secure sites and preceptors for each of your clinical placement terms. Your specialist, who is specifically assigned to you based on your state of residence, has developed a network of contacts among health care providers in your state and can use this knowledge to help you identify high-quality placement opportunities.

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 the health care professional the opportunity to partner with Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing to translate classroom preparation into hands-on patient care, while developing their own teaching and mentoring skills.
