CU College of Nursing is serious about the education of our students. Further we care about the satisfaction of our students and clinical partners.
In the Denver area, schools and colleges obtain space for and place students in clinical agencies using a centralized scheduling system. Placements are not determined by individual colleges. There are times that agencies have to cancel pre-arranged placements at the last minute. Frequently, this is due to agency staffing issues where patient safety is first and foremost. Although the circumstances are beyond our control, we at the CU College of Nursing realize this wreaks havoc in our student’s lives. We regret these circumstances and move quickly to find alternative clinical placements. Fortunately, this has happened to very few students.
Despite the challenges, clinical placements at the CU College of Nursing have been provided for all scheduled clinical courses and there have been no delays in student progression to anticipated graduation date. We hope that nurses and nursing students will choose to get the facts and investigate the issues before choosing to believe that schools, their staff or educators don’t care.
