I am praying that not all of them are like the one I am in. I am trying to finish the semester so I can get out!!!!! It is so unorganized, it is not working nurse friendly, inconsistent and they want all the clinical requirements as if we were going into a facility (physical, drug, TB, etc). I am already working and went through all of that. It is a stat school and I have talked to two other state schools who do not have the clinical requirements.
I should have done my research first. The director of the program, the WHOLE RN-BSN program does not even have a MSN, let alone a doctorate. So frustrated.
I am going to try one other state school program that has all doctorate level instructors and does not require the clinical nonsense requirements.
I don't mind doing the work, but it is just awful. Spoke to an instructor today who told me that basically, ADN trained students cannot critically think; that we just do the skills to maintain our pts, just follow directions, and send them on their way with no thought as to what happens to them after they leave. REALLY? And putting the comma or italics properly in APA style is going to fix my ADN problem how?
Thanks for letting me vent.
I skimmed the requirements that are changing and I don't see the clinical component. I may be missing it though. However, the old standard programs do not just vanish. It's till their next review.
I think I found the paper. It does not involve clinicals in the traditional sense but the capstone that a lot of programs already use. Also, I kind of question whether it has been implemented yet or if it is a strong suggestion.
