When (what semester of NS)do clinicals start?
- 0I was recently notified that I have been accepted into the program for the Fall (yeah!) and I go to an orientation meeting in a couple of weeks but I am really curious when clinicals actually start. I will have Intro to Pharm and Foundations in the first semester. I have read on here of people doing clinicals in Foundations and so does this mean that clinicals start in your very first semester?
Thanks for any info!!

I think it depends on the program. I'm starting in Jan '09 (accelerated 2nd BSN). We only have a 1 credit clinical lab the first semester (to teach us basic skills--we practice on each other, I think). Then during summer semester, we get launched into clinical (3 days/week!!). Does your program have a curriculum plan on their web site? It should tell you which semester you start. Good luck!!
- 0My bad, it does say in the description of Foundations "learning experience occurs in a variety of college and community settings" and so I guess they start clinicals in the first semester.
I have read the description before and never never saw that before, wonder if they changed it.
Although I usually access it from the schedule side of it and this time I did from the catalog section and so maybe the descriptions are a little different.
Thank you so much for your help!!
