Clinical practice experiences are an integral part of MacEwan’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program. These experiences build on an extensive theoretical base and are designed to establish a strong theoretical foundation and development of excellence in nursing practice.
Clinical practice experiences are strategically positioned within every academic year. For years two, three and four, the clinical courses are scheduled within concentrated blocks of time over the full term. These clinical courses follow the theory term in which students attain the knowledge, skills and competencies which are integrated into the practice settings. The sequence for the clinical courses within the term varies for individuals. Placement experiences are located within a 150 km. radius from MacEwan. Student access to a vehicle is necessary when a practice setting is not accessible by public transportation.
