Hands-on patient care in clinical settings is a requisite component of a nursing degree. During your clinicals, with the supervision of a licensed nurse practitioner, you’ll practice what you learned in the online classroom on real patients. (ABSN students will practice under the supervision of a licensed registered nurse with three or more years of experience.)
Clinicals are very similar to an internship or being an apprentice; you provide care for real patients while benefiting from the supervision and guidance of your preceptor and indirect supervision and support from the UIndy faculty.
