ABSTRACT
The article discusses the lack of quality clinical sites in prelicensure nursing programs. It states that some of the strategies employed by the faculty to solve the problem include the provision of clinical rotations on evenings, nights, weekends and holidays and substitution of simulation activities for clinical hours. According to the article, finding quality clinical sites usually resulted to increased travel time for both faculty and students, especially for those in rural areas.
