Experience in a clinical setting is an integral part of all U-M School of Nursing academic programs.  A subset of the required classes for each degree program will include a graded clinical component which must be completed in order to earn credit. Thus, each clinical rotation lasts for a semester. Depending on the specialty, clinical placement will begin in the first or second semester. Through one-on-one discussion, our experienced faculty members come to understand a student's interests and then help match that student to a location that will engage and develop the student's skills. Particular thought will be given to placements for Coverdell Fellows to ensure their experience with health promotion and care for vulnerable populations is well utilized.


The UMSN has partnered with NursingCAS, which is a centralized application system. Upon admission, along with the FAFSA, students complete an online questionnaire called “My Scholarship Profile,” which outlines, among other things, whether they have completed any National Service (including Peace Corps.) The Office of Financial Aid in the School of Nursing reviews the profile to identify students eligible for various scholarships and fellowships available through the School.  Current or Returned Peace Corps Volunteers will be invited to submit an application.
