All clinical placements are authorized by the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing. There is a process within each course/track where clinical sites and placements are vetted and secured to ensure an excellent clinical experience. A student with a particular placement request should inform the course coordinator when completing the pre-clinical information form. Unless otherwise directed, the student is not to contact the site directly to request a placement. While requests will be considered, no placement or clinical site identified by the student is guaranteed.

On-campus students are assigned clinical sites within the Baltimore/Washington area. Students may be assigned a clinical practice site outside the range of public transportation. It is the responsibility of the student to have reliable transportation to all assigned clinical sites.

Distance students should contact their course coordinator regarding the process for securing a clinical site and preceptor. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure he/she has reliable transportation to travel to a clinical site. It is the responsibility of the student to have reliable transportation to all assigned clinical sites.

In some instances, make-up fees may be charged to a student who misses a clinical.
