Nursing Student Placements

Connecticut Children’s is a nationally recognized organization that provides exceptional care for pediatric patients. We collaborate with several nursing schools to provide the best possible pediatric nursing learning experiences.

We are excited that you have decided to complete part of your nursing education with Connecticut Children’s. Pediatric nursing is an exciting and ever-changing field. At Connecticut Children’s we are dedicated to improving the physical and emotional health of children through family-centered care, research, education and advocacy.

Instructor-Led Clinical Groups

Traditional instructor-led experience involves an instructor bringing a group of students to a clinical unit in a hospital for learning. Students have the opportunities within our medical-surgical units, emergency department, ambulatory surgery center and ambulatory clinic settings.

All requests for Clinical Group placement must be submitted by an academic partner’s Placement Coordinator.

Capstone Placements

Capstone placements are limited to senior-level students; these students are paired with a Connecticut Children’s team member (also called a preceptor) in the student’s area of interest. There are a limited number of placements available in any given semester over a variety of settings within the organization.

All requests for Capstone Placement must be submitted by an academic partner to Connecticut Children’s Nursing Student Placement Coordinator through our Nursing Capstone Application form (see submission deadlines below). Please reach out to your academic coordinator if you are interested in a Capstone experience at Connecticut Children’s.
