Practicum Packet Update for MSN Students

Please be advised that the Practicum Packet has been updated to reflect the new writeable forms. All submissions will now be done electronically through these links to All approval/denial and follow-up communications will take place through this email address as well.


Practicum Preparation

Two Practicums are included in each area of specialty offered in the MSN degree. To prepare for the Practicum students must read and access the Practicum Packet in the year prior to the anticipated start date of the Practicum. The Intent to Register Form (Part A) must be submitted six months (24 weeks) prior to the start of the Practicum for which students wish to register. The Intent to Register Form (Part C) is required for Nurse Educator students only and must also be submitted six months (24 weeks) prior to the start of the Practicum. After initial practicum approval students must then submit the Project Proposal Form (Part B), the Delineation of Responsibilities Form, and complete all the Health and Safety requirements as outlined in the Practicum Packet. These forms and documents must be submitted three months (12 weeks) prior to the start of the first Practicum course.

An updated resume or Curriculum Vitae (CV) must be uploaded into all students’ e-Portfolios, and a copy must be submitted with the initial practicum paperwork. A sample resume and sample CV have been provided.


For students that are asked to revise and resubmit practicum goals or project proposals, use the appropriate forms below:

The MSN e-Portfolio, which is initiated in the first graduate course, and should be updated with appropriate course assignments and materials as students progress through each graduate course, must be updated prior to the start of the Practicum.
