FNU students have a long tradition of identifying their own clinical sites, which allows you to find the best sites in your area that meet your program needs. As an FNU student, you will have exclusive access to the university’s network of approximately 10,000 sites and preceptors.
MSN and post-graduate certificate students receive university support to assist in identifying preceptors and clinical sites during Frontier Bound orientation (ADN Bridge students receive this information at their on-campus Crossing the Bridge session). We highly recommend identifying appropriate preceptors early in the program as rotations can be competitive, especially in certain regions.
FNU can credential any site where you establish a relationship. Once you receive a commitment from a preceptor, you’ll submit a Clinical Site Approval Form, which is evaluated by your Regional Clinical Faculty member to ensure your identified site is appropriate for your program requirements. Once deemed appropriate, the Clinical Credentialing office will work to establish a contract, exchange certificates of insurance, and facilitate your student clearance at the site. FNU provides general and professional liability insurance for all clinical students.
If you are applying to FNU and already have a commitment from a preceptor, you will learn how to submit your clinical plan for review by your assigned Regional Clinical Faculty member. Learn more about identifying a preceptor.
