Nursing student placement

All nursing students must work through your school’s nursing Instructor regarding clinical placement or observation at Kadlec Regional Medical Center. As part of your placement process you will be required to submit documentation. Any incomplete paperwork will not be accepted.

For students looking to do research or capstone projects, follow the steps listed in the "Research" section once your nursing instructor has approved your request.
