YES! Thank you for that info.. And your placements were each semester correct? One hospital per semester or did you have to go between the variations during the 16 weeks..?
I figured it would be anywhere up and down the state but was curious if there was a method to placements based on campus locations so that student placement numbers would be organized between the sites.. RI is small enough of course,but I find myself stuck in the middle over here in Bristol as much as I enjoy the town.. 136 is a nightmare of traffic and lights that the other day I went to look at a place in Warwick and it took an hour.
It even takes about 20 -30 mins to get to Newport but that is due to the portsmouth area being 25 miles an hour..
So I feel centrally located is best.. I actually would prefer the lincoln campus seems due to RIC/PC there are more options for affordable renting and its still central to Providence Hospitals; and the balance of work and life against the timing of the 4 semesters would suit me to start in Jan as I also need to work and am a single parent..
Child care facilities continue to surprise me with their hours of operation.. 8-4?? .. or something like that.. I mean where do all the health professionals bring their children when they work 7-3 or 7-7.. I guess they are all married and have someone at home or something..
I don't know I lived in Fla for 7 yrs and all the schools had child care (free for students during class time) and a huge majority of hospitals had on site child care facilities, open at night, for health care workers .. even if your child was sick you could bring them and come in for your shift (hence it is a hospital).. seems smart to me and in line with the current times of how families are today..
BUT I don't know if I want to take my chances and re apply in Aug. I don't belive they consider you were previously accepted.. or maybe? My GPA is high, but why press my luck it takes long enough the first time around..
Great thing is I work from home so essentially i can live anywhere... Orientation is in a couple of weeks.. I have already bought books and read and scoured the internet for videos/ lectures and those kinds of things for a while now just to have knowledge and insight ahead of time...
