To paraphrase Aristotle, we learn best by doing. Experience in a clinical setting is vital to the comprehensive learning process for all FIU Nursing students. We’ve cultivated strong partnerships with many healthcare delivery facilities to give our students practical exposure in various real workplace environments to prepare them for what lies ahead.
Our students benefit from the hands-on learning that is only possible when you apply theoretical skills into practice. As an FIU Nursing student, your knowledge base is further enhanced by working alongside top healthcare professionals to gain deeper understanding from their example and expertise.
Clinical education at FIU also includes teaching scenarios in our mock hospital at the S.T.A.R. Center (Simulation Teaching and Research). This one-of-kind teaching facility uses cutting-edge simulation equipment, digital imaging systems, closed-circuit monitoring and web-based technologies so that students safely develop and become confident in their clinical and critical thinking skills before experiencing the consequences of real-world decisions.
