For Current Students:

What is the status of my clinical experience?

Clinical experiences for the spring quarter are occurring in an online format for most programs. Drexel University College of Nursing and Health Professions, as a leader in online education, has developed several state-of-the-art simulated clinical experiences, including standardized patients, facilitated simulations, unfolding case studies, Avatar-based encounters and virtual clinical environments.

The novel coronavirus disease process has put us in a situation of several unknowns. We are working on options to move ahead based on several scenarios. Our goal is to have students returned to in-person clinicals as soon as possible. Right now, we are working with our clinical partners to determine the status of in-person clinical rotations for the summer. Please contact your department or program chair for specific program decisions.
