How many days a week do you have clinicals? Will it be possible to work 32 hours a week while attending the FNP program part time?
Thanks so much!
I am finishing my 5th semester this week which was my first semester of clinicals. I'm in the Adult Primary Care program and we had to have 135 clinical hours this semester, 135 next semester, and 360 hours for residency in the fall. I worked three 12's each week and did my 135 clinical hours and banked an extra 40 hours for summer. I did 2 days a week most weeks. It was tough! I'm cutting back to two 12's for the summer since we still have 4 tests, a paper to write and 5-6 SOAP notes to do on top of the clinical hours in about 10 weeks instead of the 15-16 weeks that we had this semester. Starting this fall though, the semesters will be evened out so a short summer semester will no longer be a concern for students.
I started in Fall 2011 and there is a large group of us who started at the same time that have a facebook page that we use to support one another. Hope this answers your questions! Good luck!
