Accelerated Nursing Clinicals at Baltimore Health Care Facilities
Clinical placements are one of the most important components of the Notre Dame of Maryland University Accelerated 2nd Degree ABSN curriculum because they offer a first-hand perspective and experience on how to deliver safe and effective patient care. Under the supervision of a highly qualified ABSN program clinical instructor, you’ll work with patients and their families in a variety of clinical settings and areas of nursing practice:
- Medical Surgical Nursing
- Advanced Medical Surgical Nursing
- Psychiatric/Mental Health Nursing
- Community Health
Thanks to Notre Dame’s proximity to some of the region’s most prestigious health care providers, we’ve developed a robust network of practice partners through which our students can hone their clinical experience. While we can’t guarantee specific clinical placement locations, you can expect to gain valuable real-world experience at any of the following clinical sites local to the Baltimore metro area:
- Mercy Medical Center
- Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital
- St. Agnes Hospital
- UMMC Midtown Campus
- University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC)
- University of Maryland St. Joseph’s Medical Center
Clinical placements also offer a chance to “try on” different nursing roles and discover which specialties you may be interested in.
Clinicals are also a great time to network with other healthcare professionals and learn more about the day-today duties of a nurse. We often tell students to treat your clinical placements like a long job interview—after all, you’ll be getting great experience working with some of the best medical professionals in the area.
There’s no better place to complete your clinical rotations than Baltimore, and the NDMU ABSN program prepares you to make the most of your experience so that you can confidently enter the health care field as a practice-ready nurse.
