    Applications are revised each semester with updated placement availability and are accepted on a semester by semester basis. Please complete the application for the appropriate semester as applications cannot be accepted early, nor can requests be made for more than one semester at a time. Please see the timeline below and check back for the linked application at the appropriate time.

    Submission of an application cannot be considered a guarantee of placement; requests for practicum experiences typically exceed the available placements. Pediatric primary care clinical placements are not routinely available; the majority of placements are in pediatric subspecialties. Available hours for placements may not fulfill total hours requested. Therefore, you may also wish to pursue clinical placement in the community to meet your course requirements. 

    To be eligible for consideration, applications must be completed in their entirety and returned by the deadline. Should you be awarded a clinical practicum at Cincinnati Children’s, you will also need to respond accepting the placement by the deadline listed in your correspondence. 

    Applications will be considered complete when both of the following are received:

    1. Completed Survey Monkey Application 

    2. Resume / CV sent with your name in the subject line to NPStudents@cchmc.org

    You may also use this application if you are applying for a Psychiatric Clinical Practicum as a Nurse Practitioner or Clinical Nurse Specialist.
