Study trauma care, learn leadership
Nurse Practitioners from around the country are drawn to the Shock Trauma center for clinical rotations due to its unique position as the only free-standing trauma hospital in the world. The center sees more trauma patients than any other hospital in the United States, admitting approximately 8,000 injured patients yearly.
Nurse Practitioner student rotations should be made in conjunction with a Nurse Practitioner training program. Contact our Education Coordinator to further explore training opportunities. We primarily offer Nurse Practitioner student rotation for Acute/Critical Care NP students. We can occasionally place primary care NP students with our orthopaedics team or acute pain management team.
We have a limited ability to provide rotations for Physician Assistant students. We typically accept Physician Assistant students who have significant healthcare experience and are comfortable having Nurse Practitioners as preceptors for part of their rotation.
Current Nurse Practitioners who wish to further their training through a rotation at Shock Trauma should directly contact the Education Coordinator. These rotations are typically strictly observational due to credentialing requirements.
