I am in a 12 month LPN program.
October started my 7th month.
We have completed Fumdamentals, Med/Surg I, and Med/SurgII.
Today we started Maternity and Pediatric Nursing.
My problem is we aren't getting clinical experience.
In fundamentals we had 4 different clinical instuctors, the outcome of that was making beds and taking blood pressure with 1 day
with 1 out of the 4 instructors with the other 3 we had to sit and listen to their nursing stories for clinicals.
Med/Surg I we got on the floor one time
and because the teacher called herself punishing us she made us clean a patient.
Med/Surg II we lost an instuctor who seemed to be about her business because my school sent us to a hospital without asking permission of the facility so of course we got kicked out. IN this case we ended up at a clinical site with another group of students needless to say we couldn't get on the floor 21 students with 1 teacher. Yesterday was the final only 4 people passed the class so they dropped 21 questions and as a result only 2 people failed out.
3 days out of the week we are supposed to be in clinicals but we are sent home early every time.
Im seriously considering leaving but I hate to waste all the time and money
What Do You Think About This Situation?
