Clinical Nursing Experience
The thought of reliving your clinicals might cause you a bit of anxiety. But the clinical nursing experience at University of Phoenix is different from what you may have encountered in nursing school. For starters, they’re done on your schedule, so you don’t have to worry about missing work. Secondly, and more importantly, whereas your previous clinicals may have been assigned to you, your post-licensure clinicals are ones you choose that best fit with your professional goals and personal interests. And when you combine your clinicals with the current experiences of your instructors, you’ll be well-prepared to put your knowledge to immediate use.
