Please note that all new incoming students are required to attend preclinical training. Training sessions for N95 mask fit testing and BLS certification are mandatory and will take place on the following dates: September 9-10th.

Please review Meyers Clinical Absenteeism Policy. There are no additional outside costs for these NYU trainings.

For questions about health clearance forms or preclinical training, please contact the Office of Academic Clinical Affairs.

Course Registration

The Office of Undergraduate Programs will randomly assign you to clinical sites and register you for ALL of your required coursework during your nursing sequences. Students in the BS program have their off-campus clinical experiences in a variety of settings throughout the New York Tristate area. You will receive a confirmation email when your schedule is complete and available in Albert.

The Office of Undergraduate Programs and Academic Clinical Affairs put a tremendous amount of effort into securing clinical sites and creating each student’s schedule. Our random process for clinical site selection results in a fair process for all students enrolled in our program. Due to the requirements, policies, and procedures established by our hospital/agency clinical partners, we are unable to make changes to student clinical assignments, unless required by our hospital/agency clinical partners.
