Hello - this is my very first time posting a new topic, hopefully I'm doing this correctly. Just wanted to see if there are any ladies/gentlemen out there applying into the nursing program for the Spring 2013 semester. We... Read More

    The above post was in reference to to post above it regarding the schedule, by the way. Sorry, I'm still chuckling at the 7:30 to 12 bit.....I wish!!!!! I can't believe they told you that. The secretaries, unfortunately, get sooo tired of all the phone calls from prospective students, that they almost tell them anything to keep them from calling back. Plan for 6:30 till at least 2:30 or 3:00 pm for clinical.

    If the information I posted is incorrect, can you please shed some light as to what a more correct schedule would be? I'm completely lost and beyond frustrated with the lack of communication and wrong information I've been getting now for almost 2 years about this program.

    Its not a rumor, I've been in this program for two years. I have never had to be at clinical later that 6:30 am EXCEPT during the PSYCH rotation in 3rd semester. I don't know ANYONE who starts at 7:30 and ends at 12. Who did you talk to because that is a bunch of baloney.

    You may be the lucky group who gets an easy schedule like that...who knows, maybe they just changed things!! (Which happens often!) Like I said, and I CANNOT stress this enough: BE FLEXIBLE!!! There will be tons of "conferences, labs,orientations, etc...." that they tell you about when the semester begins that will take place on your days off. Just be sure you have reliable emergency go-to people to help with childcare. I don't mean to scare you - HONESTLY!! I just want you to be prepared. Your schedule will be very, very erratic especially in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th semesters. When you get your schedule on registration day, please don't think that is actually your ENTIRE schedule...they will add, subtract, and multiply it several times over. Just be prepared and flexible and you will be fine. As far as the "schedule' you posted.....the first part is right with Theory, but please plan on being at clinical for much longer that that. And there will be several things shoved in between. It's hard to explain now, but you will see what I'm talking about soon.

    No offense hopefull2011, but if you've been in this program for 2 years, then you are about to graduate, right? Why are you even on this thread? You said you didn't want to scare anyone, but that's exactly what you're doing. You never even answered my question about what a more feasible schedule looks like, since the one I posted was apparently, baloney.

    If you are just 2 months away from graudating, maybe a better approach to all of us "newbies" would be to encourage instead of what you're currently doing, because what you're currently doing.....sucks.

    For the most part, you WILL be done by 3pm on most days. I'm pretty sure 1st semester you will be out earlier than 3 on clinical days....maybe 1:30 or 2 pm if I remember correctly. And if you have to take 140, I do believe one of those sections goes till 4pm, but that class only lasts for half of the first semester. Once you are done with 1st semester, you will not get out of clinical before 3pm. They used to make us go to the hospital the night before to research our patient during 2nd semester...pretty sure you'll have to do that still. It may seem like you've been getting the "wrong information for 2 years", and that is because they literally change things every semester. Be FLEXIBLE...did I already mention that?? Good luck girls!

    You know what???? If you don't want to hear reality then that is your problem. Just trying to help, but looks like you just want to hear fairly tales. Good luck getting through the program. No more advice from here. I'll get off your board now. What YOU are currently doing sucks and you will be one of those girls that will be crying everyday in panic whenever your structured schedule changes. Wake up now or you will be rudely awaken shortly.

    And I did answer your question.....try reading all the posts before you respond in a rude manner. I suggest you start growing a thicker skin and toughen up a bit.....that's a nursing school requirement. Good luckkkkkk

    And what did I do that "sucks"????? I told you that you won't be done with clinical by noon and suggested you be very flexible?? Are you kidding me?? You actually took offense to that? I was only trying to give advice to everyone from someone who has been there, but I guess the best way to learn is to experience it. And you are right....I will be an RN in about two months. I don't have time to be giving advice to people that don't appreciate it. I have an exam to study for (for which I was about to give some tips and advice, but never mind.....).
