Why Universities Partner with NPHub: Boost Graduation Rates & Access Exclusive Placements

Help Students Graduate On Time & Become Better NPs

Universities offering NP programs often find themselves understaffed, underfunded, and needing more resources to effectively assist their students in securing clinical placements. 

While these institutions excel at providing academic support, they need help to bridge the gap between classroom learning and real-world clinical experience.

Consequently, NP students are left to navigate the challenging landscape of finding preceptors and securing rotations on their own. This process can be time-consuming and frustrating, often leading to delays in graduation and added financial burdens.

Some of the critical challenges faced by NP students include:

  • Preceptor shortage, coupled with an increasing number of NP students
  • Preceptors' reluctance to take on students due to past negative experiences or concerns about reduced productivity
  • Complex and time-consuming coordination of preceptorship logistics

The Ripple Effect in Healthcare Education and Delivery

When universities are understaffed, underfunded, and lack the necessary resources to assist students in securing clinical rotations, a chain reaction occurs that impacts healthcare in the U.S. We see:

  1. Low Graduation Rates: Students who struggle to find preceptors and secure rotations experience delays in completing their programs. In fact, some students become discouraged and withdraw from their programs altogether.
  2. Healthcare Provider Shortage: Low graduation rates and students opting out of NP programs perpetuates the healthcare provider shortage. The ripple effect of inadequate clinical placement support extends far beyond the walls of universities, ultimately impacting the quality and accessibility of healthcare services in America.

But Why Partner with NPHub?
