Here's what one student had to say about her
experience at Rice...

I completed two clinical rotations at Rice Memorial Hospital as an RN student, one on the floor providing direct patient care and the other was shadowing hospital directors during my leadership clinical.

Rice provided an excellent learning environment with many opportunities to safely care for patients, learn from the accomplished staff, and gain insight into how the hospital is run.

I was extremely impressed with the high-caliber of care provided
to the patients, the welcoming attitude of the staff, and the strong
collaborative leadership.

Rice is the kind of place I hope to work when I become and RN!

--Karen Heimdahl, RN Student
