Clinical Requirements:
A total of 500 clinical hours is required and is incorporated in four courses. A hallmark of CNL preparation is a clinical immersion experience that provides a large portion of the clinical requirements across a semester. Clinical placement will be coordinated to be convenient to a student’s geographic location, if appropriate.
