Nursing Student Clinical Placement

Graduate StudentsGraduate Students Interested in a Preceptorship

Due to the increasing number of Nurse Practitioner (NP), Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), and Doctor of Nursing (DNP) grad student placement requests at Michigan Medicine, we are no longer able to place graduate students from external schools unless they are Michigan Medicine employees.

We will be able to place NP, FNP, and DNP non-employee grad students that attend UMSN-Ann Arbor and UMSN-Flint.

  • 1 ST PRIORITY: UMSN-Ann Arbor & Michigan Medicine employees enrolled in external schools

NOTE: This requirement excludes the Neonatal Nurse Practitioner (NNP) requests. All NNP students will follow the MSN and CNS guidelines listed below in STEP 1 for approval.

We do not clinically place visiting observer or shadow experience requests. Please contact the unit/ area for further information. You and the unit/area must follow all policy guidelines.
