Utilizing health departments, community hospitals, out-patient facilities, home care agencies, industries, schools, older adult care facilities, mental health care facilities, and rehabilitation centers, the School of Nursing provides varied clinical experiences for its students.

Counseling The Department of Student Health and Wellness and University Counseling and Psychological Center (CAPS) are available to assist students through individual and group counseling sessions. 

McLeod Hall & Claude Moore Nursing Education Building Located in the eastern part of the University Grounds, near the UVA Medical Center, the school occupies the Claude Moore Nursing Education Building and McLeod Hall. McLeod Hall is a five-story brick building that has housed the School of Nursing since its dedication in November 1972. Claude Moore Nursing Education Building is a four-story facility that opened in June 2008. The facilities house classrooms, an auditorium, clinical learning laboratories, seminar rooms, and offices. 
The School of Nursing draws upon the multiple resources of the University’s 12 academic divisions and UVA Health. The graduate programs in nursing are further strengthened by the facilities and personnel of a wide variety of Virginia hospitals, community health centers, health departments, and private physicians’ offices.
