Join us this summer where you will have self-paced, online modules to complete around your schedule. The online modules will open on June 30th. You will have a month to complete modules before joining us on campus for three full days of immersive hands-on skills-building practice facilitated by experienced nurse practitioners. Not only will you practice the skills you’ve read about, you’ll be able to receive individualized expert feedback and suggestions, get your questions answered, and practice until you feel confident with your skills. The online modules build upon the anatomy, physiology and assessment skills learned at the undergraduate level.

This lab practice will be held at the UNC at Chapel Hill School of Nursing August 1-3, 2017.

Quotes from 2016 participants

Truly appreciated the hands-on learning with an instructor available for questions and critique."

The hands-on application of skills as well as the relaxed environment.
