About Practicum Courses
The Master of Science Program in Leadership requires a total of 500 hours in multiple practicum experiences. All practicum experiences occur on-site at health care facilities, provider practices or other appropriate venues. Faculty will arrange these practicum experiences with approved preceptors at facilities and practices with which Rutgers has a contract or letter of agreement. Because you will be practicing at an advanced level, preceptors or facility representatives may request and interview with you or may ask you to complete a student experience application before starting a practicum experience.
