Clinical schedules

  1. What kind of clinical schedules does everyone have? Im in my first semester so its only 7:30 to 12:30 Tues and Wed. We start clinicals end of March. This summer we start our 8 hour clinicals (6:30 to 2:30 I think) until our last semester when we have 12 hour clinicals.

    [font=Comic Sans MS]Wow! 12-hour clinicals! While very long, you probably won't shock your system as much as some of us who are doing clinicals for half that time.

    We start ours in April, we have 4 total, one each week - all are 12 hour days and we've been warned already, 2 of the 4 clinical instructors start at 5 a.m.!!!

    After this semester we have clinicals 1 day a week, 12 hour days for the remainder of the program. Clinical days are usually Wed. or Thurs.

    Semester 1 - 13 hours once a week (one hour for lunch)
    Semester 2 - the same
    I am currently in semester 3 and have Mon and Tues 8 hour days. All I my clinicals have started at the god awful time of 6:30 AM. And with an hour of travel to a clinical site you really have to get up early. :angryfire
