“Rogers’ best asset is offering a wide range of experiences for students who get to observe patients from children and adolescents to adults. The staff are supportive of the students’ growth as they learn more about what it means to be a professional nurse.”

Our locations serve as training sites for over 200 RN students drawn from prominent nursing schools in the Midwest. Rogers also offers clinical placement for psychiatric nurse practitioner students.

All our students benefit from capstone learning that provides the opportunity to focus on the area of nursing that best suits you as an individual. With extra support and training across behavioral health, all our staff want to help you feel welcome and able to discover insights into a professional nursing career.

We currently have clinical inpatient and outpatient placements available in Brown Deer, Oconomowoc and West Allis; plus further outpatient placements in Kenosha. Plus, students can have the opportunity to work with a variety of age ranges from child and adolescent to adult.

Students should contact their school’s program placement coordinator who will work with Rogers to find the right opportunity for you.


We aim to help our new nurses provide the highest standards of care as quickly and efficiently as possible. That’s why we have developed a specific orientation program for nurses entering the organization. Every learning plan will be individually tailored, and the program will cater for nurses from all areas and levels of professional experience.

Our orientation features an intense 10-day classroom training including an overall Rogers orientation plus nursing-specific modules.

Led by nurse educators, topics include:

  • Psychopharmacology
  • Advanced assessment skills
  • Quality and risk education
  • Documentation in the Cerner electronic health record
  • Managing complex patients.

Nursing orientation also integrates simulation experiences and patient care experiences on the unit.

Once the initial orientation is complete, each newly hired nurse works with a trained preceptor who develops an individualized learning plan based on your experience and knowledge.

New graduates

Rogers welcomes the opportunity to work with new graduates who have a passion for behavioral health. Our onboarding process is designed to support new nurses and assure competence in key nursing and assessment skills.
