Can you tell me what type of facilities the clinicals were held at? - Was it a mixture of hospital, medical center, nursing home, etc? And can I ask what other programs you considered before choosing Utica? Sorry, I'm just trying to get as much information as I can from someone who actually went through the program.
Hi, the clinicals are as follows.
Med-Surg: Hospital setting on various med surg units
OB/GYN: Hospital, Women’s center
Peds: All children’s hospital, various units including ICU
Geriatrics: A nursing home
Psych: Behavioral Health Center
The clinicals for the Tampa campus are great. They are all BayCare, and baycare is a great company consisting of several large and small hospitals. They are a Fortune 500 company.
I considered other schools but I loved the location of this program, and I actually prefer online classes.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
I’ve done clinicals in the cardiovascular ICU, medical ICU, neuro ICU, trauma ICU, pediatric ICU, and neonatal ICU. There are also all kinds of med surg units you rotate through (cardio, GI, neuro, ortho, renal, respiratory). I also did a few days in the emergency room. I just finished my preceptorship in the medical ICU at St. Joseph’s Main Hospital. As far as clinicals is concerned you definitely get the full experience.
