Nursing Students

Student information for clinical groups and preceptees

We are excited you have decided to complete part of your nursing education at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. Pediatric nursing is an ever changing and fulfilling career. We are committed to providing the best possible pediatric nursing learning experience.

All student placements must be made through an affiliated school of nursing faculty members. We do not accept requests directly from students.


As a student doing a learning experience here at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, you must review the National Patient Safety Goals, Policy and Procedures, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin unit profiles and "What you need to know" for the unit/area you are assigned to. You must also view the student orientation and clean hands slide shows before your first day.
