I can't figure out how to sent you a personal message so I'll just respond here. Thank you so much for getting back to me! I would love to talk with you more about the Masters Entry Program.
What were your clinical placements like? I heard that it is necessary to have a car because a lot of the clinicals are in the suburbs of Boston, not T accessible. Do you think it is impossible to get through the program without a car?
It is very reassuring to hear that you got a job right away. From everything I have read on this website and through word of mouth, it seems like BC nurses are definitely well respected in the medical community. I am very excited to be a part of it!
My clinical placements were good. My RN clinicals were at NEMC, BI, Carney, BMC, and at one of the Boston Public Schools. With the exception of NEMC, I thought they were great. The floor we were assigned to at NEMC really didn't want to have students, so it wasn't the best experience. I don't believe they're using that floor anymore for clinicals. You can definitely get through your first year clinicals without a car. You really do need one for your NP clinicals, as the placements in Boston are limited, and most of the great sites are outside the city. Overall, I was very happy with the program.
