Opportunities for advanced practice students

We provide advanced practice training for the following programs: physician assistants, nurse practitioners and certified nurse midwives. As health care providers, these professionals play a significant role in the delivery of patient care. We are pleased to provide advanced practice students with dynamic, exciting educational experiences.

In order to complete rotations with SHS, you must be enrolled in a program for one of the occupations listed above. It is vital that permission is received from your institution's Academic Coordinator of Clinical Education prior to requesting a rotation. If you have any questions, please contact the SHS Manager of Student Services.
