FNP and PA Student Clinical Placement Programs

The Little Clinic offers Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) and Physician Assistant (PA) student-required clinical experience opportunities. These FNP and PA clinical experiences are associated with schools through which The Little Clinic holds student affiliation agreements. There are a limited number of openings for nursing students from each school, and all arrangements for student clinical experiences are coordinated through the school’s clinical director.

The Little Clinic’s Preceptor Program is designed to offer student nurses a variety of clinical experiences within a retail health setting. Students will be able to care for a diverse subset of patients using a multidisciplinary team approach.
