Hands-On Training Through ACE
The UMMS Academy of Clinical Essentials (ACE) program pairs groups of four nursing students with an experienced UMMS nurse for hands-on clinical training. The cohorts are guided by their assigned nurse instructor on 12.5-hour shifts, caring for real patients on the unit. Many units at UM BWMC participate in the ACE Program including Pediatrics, Labor and Delivery, Acute Care and more.
