These Western FNP Programs Provide Clinical Placements for NP Students

Securing a clinical placement site on your own can be a challenge. Fortunately, many FNP programs across the country are willing to lend a helping hand. If you’re looking to attend a program in the western region of the states, here are seven Family Nurse Practitioner programs that provide clinical placements for their students.

1. Holy Names University

Oakland, CA

Though the FNP program at Holy Names University works with many preceptors in a variety sites throughout the Northern California region, the professors do recommend that students be flexible in their placements as the school is not always able to offer exactly what each student wants in their clinical site.

2. San Francisco State University
