Nursing & Allied Health Student Orientation

Wesley partners with several local and regional technical colleges, community colleges and universities to assist with the education and training of students in various healthcare programs.

Clinical experiences include (but are not limited to) nursing, pharmacy, respiratory therapy, radiology, pathology, social work, occupational, physical and speech therapy, and child life specialist. Up to 1000 students from various healthcare programs are on the Wesley campus each semester.

Our staff are dedicated professionals who use their expertise and experience to provide optimal “hands-on” opportunities for every student. We strive to help students recognize and maximize their potential. Our goal is to have each student choose Wesley as the place they want to work after graduation.

Wesley is proud to be a part of the Healthcare Careers Coalition with the Wichita Area Chamber of Commerce. This group consists of administrators from both the clinical and academic settings. The purpose of this group is to impact on the local nursing shortage by working with local schools and universities to identify ways to increase the numbers of nursing students and provide assistance in locating additional clinical space needed to accommodate the increased number of students.
