Courses such as Leadership Management, Nursing Informatics, and Organizational Behavior provide the practical knowledge you need to become a leader in today’s complex, business-oriented, healthcare environment. Your capstone Preceptorship gives you the chance to apply your leadership knowledge in a management position.
Clinical experience is the heart of the nursing profession. At Upper Iowa University, we have designed clinicals so you can meet several goals:
- Achieve course objectives
- Reach your career goals
- Enable you to continue your other important activities
- Give you opportunities to practice the leadership skills you learn throughout the curriculum in practical settings
Clinical experiences are arranged cooperatively with a clinical facility and a faculty member. You can arrange your clinical hours in a way that works for you and your preceptor at the clinical facility. Clinical education agreements are required between a clinical facility and Upper Iowa University for you to participate in a clinical education experience.
