Transplant Nursing Clinical Immersion Program
This Clinical Immersion Program (CLIP) allows you to partner with experienced Johns Hopkins transplant nurses for a unique clinical experience. You will begin your immersion experience on Friday, October 10, 2014 by attending the annual Johns Hopkins Comprehensive Transplant Center's Transplant Nursing Conference. At this conference clinical experts will discuss the state-of-the-art care of the complex patient undergoing a transplant, including heart, lung, kindey, liver, and recontructive transplantation. Learn more about this conference by clicking here.
The immersion experience then continues as you spend time with our transplant coordinators navigating the transplant process from beginning to end. You will learn and observe what our transplant team does every day and what our patients and families experience from this insiders view. Your observation experience can be customized to meet your interests and time constraints. Visit for one day or stay for 3-4 weeks. Your observership visit can include such experiences as:
- Outpatient coordinators and the transplant evaluation process

This Transplant Clinical Immersion Program, rooted in the spirit of collegiality and learning, will equip you the visiting nurse, with essential skills that will help you broaden your knowledge base and improve the care that you provide to your patients upon your return home.
