Clinical education

The UW School of Nursing places you in many different health care organizations and community sites throughout the Puget Sound region and beyond for hands-on clinical learning experiences.

Site requirements vary. Some sites require submitting personally identifying information, including health-related information and part or all of your social security number. The School of Nursing will assist students for whom this might pose a problem. Protecting the safety of our students and aiding their academic progression is our top priority.

If this raises a concern for you, steps can be taken to ensure equitable access to quality clinical learning experiences. For questions and assistance, please contact the Director of Student Academic Services, Patrick Tufford (
