Nursing students participate in approximately 900 hours of diverse and educationally rewarding clinical experiences (click on the clinical site links). Nursing students admitted to University Park spend one year (either junior or senior year) at the Hershey Medical Center campus (see the Student Handbook for exceptions to this policy). Clinical facilities are located within a 50-mile radius of University Park or Hershey. Travel to and from clinical facilities is the student’s responsibility so the use of a vehicle is expected.
