Process for Clinical Experiences
The Office of Clinical Placements facilitates the processing of clinical placement requests and contracts for all clinical affiliations within the baccalaureate, master’s, advanced certificate, and DNP programs. The office works collaboratively with faculty to secure clinical placement sites for students. Once a suitable site is identified, students submit a clinical placement request form for processing. The office maintains electronic data systems and records related to students, clinical placement sites, clinical affiliation agreements, clinical contracts and preceptors. Central to the clinical placement process for all programs is the establishment of a clinical affiliation agreement and clinical contract which is executed between SUNY and the clinical site. Upon final execution of a clinical affiliation agreement, SUNY procures and provides the site with a certificate of insurance or related protection evidencing the required insurance coverage. The provisions of a clinical affiliation agreement and clinical contract include the responsibilities and mutual terms that are agreed upon during the life of the agreement.
The credits needed to complete the Advanced Certificate Program reflect state and national requirements for certification, as well as national trends. The credits reflect the precepted clinical hours necessary to complete the Advanced Certificate.
Graduates of Stony Brook's graduate nursing programs will not be required to make up credits for courses already taken within the School of Nursing. A minimum of 11 credits is required for the certificate. Any student, however, may be required to take additional credits upon the recommendation of the faculty by advisement.
