Student Nurse Clinical Placement

As the regional medical center for western Colorado and eastern Utah, St. Mary's Hospital provides valuable learning opportunities for nursing students. As the only facility in the region to offer comprehensive cardio-thoracic and neurosurgical services, cancer care, labor and delivery services, a neonatal intensive care unit, Level II trauma services, air medical transport, and many other major healthcare services, St. Mary's exposes students to a broad range of clinical experiences.

Our nursing personnel act as mentors, teachers, and professional colleagues, sharing their knowledge, experience, and dedication with nursing students of all levels.

Nursing School Faculty

Visit our Faculty pages for details on the areas of practice students experience at St. Mary's. If your school has never placed students with St. Mary's, contact the student placement coordinator to start the application and affiliation process.

When your nursing program has a contract agreement with St. Mary's follow our Faculty Checklist and complete all required forms to ensure your students are properly enrolled and move smoothly into their clinical rotation. All registration and application forms you and your students will need are available on this site.

Nursing Students

Your nursing instructor or advisor will coordinate all paperwork associated with your clinical placement, but you must review the Student Checklist carefully to prepare for your assignment with St. Mary's. All forms required to complete your registration and preparation are available on this site.
