Selecting a Clinical Site for NP Students


How did you go about selecting an clinical site? My school emailed me a long list of "approved" clinics but I have no idea how I'm supposed to go about picking one, what is the procedure for this at your school and do you have any tips?

My school set up our clinical sites for us - it was nice to not have to deal with having to do it ourselves.

The list that you were mailed, is it a generic list of "what" types of clinics you can do clinical time at, or is it a list of specific sites with names of preceptors?
