Practicum In School Nursing

The purpose of this field experience is to provide an opportunity for the student to engage in a mentoring relationship with an experienced, New Jersey certified school nurse in a diverse learning community. The student will have the opportunity to observe and participate in the various roles, functions and activities of the school nurse. The course requires 50 hours of clinical experience with the school nurse mentor. A University supervisor will visit the student in the field placement situation. Meetings of all students enrolled in the Practicum are held periodically at the University's Glassboro Campus.
