I have the same question. I am interested in any school in any state that sets up clinicals/preceptors. I do not want the headache of trying to set up my own. I have been accepted into a program near my home. However, they do not set up clinicals and I am hearing from others in the program that it is a nightmare. Thanks for any input.
Richard Stockton in NJ has been a great help to me. I'm in my second semester and just started clinical. They placed me and I am so happy! Keep in mind that they encourage you to find places that are closer to you geographically, and if you are interested in a certain place they will try and help you. They will usually place you in a facility close to the school, which in in Galloway, NJ (near the shore). Also, it is a hybrid program so you would need to be on campus, usually 1-2 nights a week. If you live in Jersey then I highly recommend it!
The University of Virginia does as well. We only admit as many people as we have assured clinical placements. We feel it puts a student at a disadvantage to locate and negotiate their own clinical education.
