Each semester students are assigned to a clinical practicum site by the Program in accordance with the RCC clinical affiliation agreements. Each student will be assigned to a minimum of two different clinical sites while enrolled in the program.
Typically, students will spend three (3) semesters assigned to one clinical site and will rotate to a new clinical site in their second year of the program. To meet the educational needs of all students the clinical assignments may be changed at any time as determined by the Program Director, Clinical Coordinators and Clinical Preceptors. Students may be required to travel up to 30 miles from campus to their assigned clinical practicum sites and must provide their own transportation.
