Here at UNC School of Nursing, a new clinical immersion model for BSN students is prioritizing student career goals and wholistic view of patient care.
In a new article featured in Nurse Educator, Louise Flemming PhD, RN, and her co-authors* discuss the limitations of the past approach to the BSN program’s clinical immersion model and highlight the successes of the new Transitions in Care Model. The Transitions in Care Model is a track-based system that places students in themed tracks (eg. cardiac, oncology, emergency department), where they will participate in at least 3 levels of the care continuum, likely in a field that reflects their career interests.
