Nursing Clinical Rotations - Highline Community College

Clinical Rotations - Nursing Students in Action

Clinical experience is one of the key components of Highline's nursing program. Students apply theory learned in the classroom to practice in various clinical settings and graduate with many hours of "hands-on" experience.

Settings for these "clinical practicum" experiences are spread throughout the North and South Sound region, offering students the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills in areas involving many populations across the lifespan, at inpatient acute (maternal-newborn, medical-surgical, psychiatric, pediatric, emergency, and critical care, etc.);  inpatient restorative or long-term (rehabilitation, skilled nursing, assisted living, etc.); outpatient (clinic, urgent care, and same-day surgery, etc.); and community (home health, hospice, support groups, early childhood education, etc.) facilities or agencies.

Clinical rotations are 8 hr shifts two days a week from 3-6 weeks, depending on the level. They may be day or evening shift.The 6th level practicum is 144-160 hrs in 4 weeks and may be days, nights or evenings with 8-12 hr shifts.


Note: Training Site will accept placement of only those students who are insured against malpractice liability for actions or inactions occurring in the clinical setting.  Students participating in the clinical education program will be covered either by a student medical malpractice policy offered through the College, or acquired by the student through another source.  The limits of such coverage shall be, at a minimum, $1,000,000 per occurrence.  Certificates of such coverage purchased by the student will be provided to Training Site upon request.  Should any student lack adequate proof of insurance, Training Site can refuse to accept the student for placement.
