It's how we help you build the real-world vocational skills and confidence you'll rely on to build your new career.
Based on the vocational skills needed for your health care program, your opportunities may include hands-on training in our skills labs, advanced simulation with current field technology—plus real patient experience through our school Externships and Clinical Rotations.
Healthcare Training Programs - Externships & Clinical Rotations
Students participating in school externship and clinical training work under the supervision of a qualified, assigned preceptor, as determined by school faculty, in participating sites and under the general supervision of school staff. College students are evaluated by supervisory personnel and evaluations are placed in students' permanent records. School externship and clinical guidelines and requirements for each vocational health care program may be obtained from the College's Program Director.
