Adult Ambulatory

The Adult Ambulatory (Outpatient Clinic) track is geared toward new nurses who seek to specialize in adult ambulatory nursing. There are several clinical areas potentially included for this track: adult cardiology clinics, adult oncology clinics, the diabetes center, the endoscopy clinic, & the clinic float pool. The program is designed to nurture the new graduate nurse in the transition from student to professional nurse. It provides new nurses with the specific tools and experiences needed to begin a successful career in several outpatient adult clinics. Placement to a specific clinic will occur prior to your start date. After orientation to VUMC, you will experience a focused orientation in your clinic, subspecialty clinics and work with a team of clinic-based preceptors.
