The School of Nursing will make every effort to provide details in advance of the match meeting. Student and Academic Services will query clinical section faculty about site details in the future to help students make informed decisions. The goal is to ask maternal/child, community health, psychiatric/mental health faculty to provide descriptions about the types of choices that may be available as part of their clinical sections.
For example, psychiatric/mental health encompasses inpatient/outpatient options across the greater Seattle area, including hospice, public schools, nurse-family partnership, and inpatient oncology/radiation. We hope that descriptions will help students understand the wide variety of opportunities, but there is no guarantee that all options described will be available.
After the match meeting, students will know which a clinical section category they are in (e.g., pediatrics, medical-surgical). The clinical instructor for each section will work out individual sites with each student. This may take approximately 3-4 weeks from the time of the match meeting until all decisions have been made.
