Clinical Placement

Nursing students working on clinical hours.


The University of South Alabama (USA) College of Nursing (CON) offers students a wide variety of clinical settings to complete the required clinical hours of their selected program. Because students are located across the country, students have the flexibility to complete clinical requirements in appropriate clinical settings near their home area. However, clinical placement is not guaranteed in the student’s home area. Students may be required to travel to complete clinical requirements in a USA CON-approved facility with an approved health care provider. The clinical practice experience must provide students the opportunity to integrate new knowledge into practice and be supervised and evaluated by faculty.
