Hi, I am trying to get an idea of how much time will actually be spent at school. I know the class schedule at my future school but not the lab time. Please share your weekly school schedule. Thanks in advance.

Monday through Thursday I have Pathophyiology, Pharmacology, Fundamentals, and Health Assessment. All are mostly 3 hour classes at one sitting... We might get a 5 or 10 minute break here and there IF we're lucky.
Mondays--Lecture 9-4 with a 1 hour break (Patho I & Aging)
Tuesdays--Lecture 9-3 with a 2 hour break (Health Promo & Fundamentals)
Wednesdays--Lecture 9-11 (Assessment)
Thursdays--Lab 10-12, Seminar 1-3 (Assessment, Fundamentals)
Friday--Clinical 8-12 (Fundamentals)
Lectures were 2-3 hours long, once a week, and a break about halfway through that varied in length depending on the teacher. I'm really not a fan of the once a week thing but its how the school set things up so I deal with it. I have 4 hour lectures this semester.
Plus we need to log at least 2 hours for each new skill we learn in the skills lab outside of Thursday. I work part time (22 hours a week) so trying to fit in working, school and studying can be hard. Hope this helps.
