Clinical Placement Opportunities

As a teaching facility LHSC welcomes nursing students for clinical learning experiences. In partnership with University of Western Ontario and Fanshawe College we provide clinical learning opportunities for nursing students within the Collaborative BScN, Compressed Time Frame BScN and Practical Nursing programs. In addition, based upon the availability of appropriate preceptors and the existence of an affiliation agreement between our organization and other educational facilities we accommodate:

  • Basic students in their Pre-Graduate Practicum
  • Post RN, BScN students
  • Graduate students
  • RN and RPN students in continuing education programs.

Nursing Clinical Placement Requests:

Students enrolled in nursing educational programs other than those offered by the University of Western Ontario or Fanshawe College, please have your Placement Coordinator contact Student Affairs


For Fall (September to December) BScN Integrative Practicum, out-of-town BscN consolidation requests will be considered after the Western BScN students have been placed. All efforts will be made to confirm placement requests by the beginning of August. Due to the large number of Western BScN and Fanshawe Practical Nursing students hosted for Winter Integrative Practicum (January to April), no further applications will be accepted for BScN and Practical Nursing consolidation. 

Application deadlines for out-of-town BScN and Practical Nursing consolidation requests:

Spring/Summer (May - August) placement = February 1

Fall placement (September - December) = June 1

Winter (January - April) placement = applications not accepted
