Nurse Practitioner Clinical Rotation (Arizona)

Program overview

Duration: Varies
Class size: 20 students a year
Location: Phoenix, Arizona

This rotation gives students a challenging and diverse clinical experience by working with nurse practitioner staff in a multidisciplinary health care team environment.

Opportunities for experience are based on availability in cardiology, endocrinology, family medicine, hospital internal medicine and transplant medicine services, if approved by your school program staff.

Students observe and participate at Mayo Clinic, a comprehensive health care facility that offers:

  • A caring, collaborative environment
  • State-of-the-art diagnostic, therapeutic and research facilities
  • A large, diverse patient population
  • An environment based on a team approach and with a commitment to mutual respect

To be eligible for the rotation, you must be:

  • Enrolled in a master's-level accredited nurse practitioner program at an affiliated school
  • In good academic standing

Contact your clinical rotation coordinator at your school to inquire about placement and to determine if your school is affiliated with Mayo Clinic's campus in Arizona.

When you successfully complete the criteria for your master's degree in nursing and the coursework at your affiliated school, you are eligible to apply for the national certification examinations.

How to apply

For more information, contact the clinical rotation coordinator in your nurse practitioner program. He or she can assist you through the application process once Mayo is notified about specific dates and requests.

Inquiries are only accepted from the clinical rotation coordinator at your nurse practitioner program and no sooner than four months prior to the rotation start dates.


Clinical rotations include intensive clinical practicums under the supervision of nurse practitioners, physician assistants and physician preceptors.

This rotation prepares you to work both independently and collaboratively as a member of a health care team.


Depending on the specialty, students may have eight- to 12-hour shifts or weekend shifts.

Tuition and financial aid

Tuition is paid to your college or university. Mayo Clinic charges a one-time per student fee of $250 for a clinical rotation, which is billed directly to the college or university.

You are responsible for your living accommodations and transportation.
