  • All APP nursing student clinical requests, placements, contracts, compliance and on boarding MUST be coordinated through the APP Center.

  • APP nursing students MUST follow the APP Center Student Rotation Procedures detailed on this website to be considered for a clinical rotation at UNC Hospitals.

  • Participation in a rotation MUST begin with the completion of the online rotation request application located on this website.

UNC Hospitals Sites ONLY include UNC Medical Center in Chapel Hill, UNC Hospitals Hillsborough Campus, and WakeBrook as well as all UNC SOM clinics.  UNC Rex, Chatham Hospital and UNCPN are NOT part of UNC-Hospitals/SOM clinic locations where the APP Center places students.  Schools need to contact those UNC Health sites separately as they are separate entities and have their own student placement processes.

APP Center Preceptors:  Advance practice providers (NPs, PAs, CNMs, CRNAs) who have been employed by UNC-Hospitals/SOM Clinics for at least 6 months.  It is important to note that Physicians are not APPs and are not in the pool of APP Center Preceptors.  While Physicians are out of scope for the APP Center to actively place students, an APP student who is precepted by a Physician MUST be on boarded by the APP Center.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

UNC Health and UNC School of Medicine believe a diverse and inclusive work environment for staff­ and culturally sensitive care for our patients are essential to fulfilling our mission of improving the health and wellbeing of North Carolinians and others we serve. We commit to value within UNC Health the diversity of all those we serve including diversity in race, ethnicity, gender identity, age, gender expression, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, and life experiences.
