Clinical Experiences

The College of Nursing recognizes the importance of providing our students with the best hands-on clinical practicum experience possible.  

Clinical experiences are an integral part of the nursing education program. Through these experiences, students gain real-life experiences in a variety of patient care settings and with culturally diverse populations.  

The human dimensions of nursing are enhanced through nurse-patient interactions which may include therapeutic communication, teaching, counseling, and advocacy. Students can enhance their performance of basic nursing procedures, organization and priority-setting skills, time management, and decision-making.

Stark County area clinical sites utilized throughout the program may include:

  • Aultman Hospital
  • Mercy Medical Center
  • Altercare
  • Heartland
  • SARAH Center
