0Jan 28, '13 by nurseprnRNIn my BSN program (back when Florence and I were classmates) we had clinical from 0700-1400 three days a week (Tues, Weds, Thurs) for sophomore, junior, and senior years. Add in the rest of all the academic stuff and we had very, very full weeks. (On Mondays I was in class from 0800 to 2200 with an hour off in the middle of the day; on Thursdays I had classes after clinical from 1600-2000). We didn't take all our science classes and distribution requirements before we started nursing, either. It was a full four year program. You wussies.
0Jan 29, '13 by kpossibleI'm in a 4 year program and last semester I had OB clinicals from 0700-1530 (one day) and mental health clinicals for 8 weeks from 1300-2000 (one day) and switched to a community site from 0800-1100. Now for medsurg, I'm there one day a week from 0700-1530 again with prep work the night before.
0Jan 29, '13 by Skips, BSN, RNQuote from EmileeBlackburnMy second semester of my BSN program was exactly like that. We had clinical one day per week from 7 a.m. to 12:50 p.m., but we didn't have observation days until this semester. Our clinicals now are 7 a.m. to 3:50 p.m. twice per week.Wow guys. My only clinical day is Thursdays 7:30am-12:30pm. And that's it. Granted, throughout the semester we have a few clinical rotations where we observe like STD clinic, radiology, dialysis, etc. but I'm only in my second semester in a two year program.
