Students in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing for Registered Nurses (RN) program must complete one 140-hour Field Period™ as a part of their bachelor’s degree requirements. An overview of the Field Period™ program and requirements are provided during the student’s orientation to the nursing program.
As an upper-level nursing course, Field Period™ is a nursing-focused learning experience for the individual student or group. The Field Period™ builds upon previous experiences, demonstrating growth and an enhanced ability to think critically. Off-campus experiences highlight personal and professional development and can also involve the areas of service learning, working with diverse populations, and working with other disciplines.
