Nurse practitioner students

Clinical experiences, or “clinicals,” are college level, school-sponsored learning experiences for nurse practitioner (NP) students offered in our patient care areas at Parkview Physicians Group office locations. Each experience must be part of an approved school program affiliated with Parkview. Student experiences are led by college faculty and selected Parkview professionals.
