I would think that they might give you some placements during your course (I know some of them do).

However I think this is a question for the University that you are applying for.

Seeing as how many NPs work as primary care providers I would think not. But as P/J said, check with the program you're interested in. Many programs have regular information sessions where you can find out more about the program and get questions answered.
