WGU’s B.S. Nursing program is designed to prepare students to bridge more quickly and effectively into practice. One key aspect of this preparation is working directly with expert nurses (Clinical Coaches) under the supervision of a skilled Clinical Instructor.
A Clinical Instructor is a Master’s-prepared clinical expert who shares his or her expertise and supports student-coach learning for up to 10 dyads. This instructor will be a hospital employee who is intimately familiar with hospital policy, procedure, and personnel. Instructors will be onsite during student clinical rotations, which occur in a compressed 3-4 week timeframe, 4 times a year.
A Clinical Instructor is a clinical expert (staff nurse) who facilitates learning one-on-one with a single student. This single student will follow the coach’s schedule for a compressed clinical rotation for up to 3 weeks at a time, four times a year.
