Student Placement

As premier academic teaching hospitals, both UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital provide an excellent environment for learning. The Department of Nursing is dedicated to supporting the education and training of future nurses through coordination of student placements throughout UCSF.

The Institute for Nursing Excellence coordinates student placements. Each year, the department of Nursing hosts many students from our partner schools within the San Francisco Bay Area. This coordination includes undergraduate student rotations, senior capstone experiences, and graduate level placements.
