Info for Practicum Students

Are you a Student? Looking for a Practicum Placement? Apply today!

Stoney Health Services offers clinical and non-clinical student practicums to help complete your chosen field of study in nursing, social work or addictions counseling. These positions are often unpaid.

A practicum placement at Stoney Health is an opportunity for you to implement theory learned during your studies and apply it within an Indigenous environment of client and family-oriented community care.

During the practicum, you have an opportunity to gain first-hand experience in supporting clients through a strengths-based approach, form an interpretation of your chosen profession, and most importantly, work with the Stoney community guided by an Indigenous perspective.

We encourage post-secondary students taking nursing, social work or addiction counseling from approved programs to apply for a practicum placement.
