Teaching Hospital

If your passion is teaching and assisting students to achieve their highest potential in the field of nursing, or if you simply enjoy practicing in a teaching hospital, you belong at Boone County Hospital (BCH).  BCH is a clinical site for several area nursing programs.  Many of the nursing students who attend clinicals at BCH return to do their preceptorships at our hospital just prior to their graduation.  And, of course, several return to BCH to practice nursing once they graduate.  Past nursing students have commented our nursing staff value the role of students and took the time to spend part of their day teaching students what excellence in nursing is all about.  BCH is a clinical site for not only nursing students, but also medical students, physical and occupational students, social work students and many other health professional educational students.  Following is just a partial list of the colleges and universities who use BCH as a clinical site for their students.
