I am entering Level I classes this August and have questions about the clinicals.
After an unsuccessful attempt at Spring 2012's application cycle, I decided to get my EMT certification. I completed my national certification testing earlier this month and was so excited upon hearing I had passed the exam that I decided to put in some applications for a PRN position with St. David's. I got a call back (entirely unexpected) the next day and scheduled an interview for the following week (!!!). I thought this would be a great experience to practice interviewing for healthcare positions and nothing more. Furthermore, I fully anticipated an long and greuling interview process, including a second interview. I was offered the position on the spot. As the excitement subsides and reality sets in, here is my delimma: I also hold another part time (~10 hours per week) position that occurs on Monday, Wedneday, and Friday.
That being said, here are my questions
From what I've read so far, clinical hours are either Thurs/Fri or Fri/Sat. Once you are assigned to a clinical schedule, is there flexibility within that schedule?
How are the hours distributed among the shifts? Two eight-hour shifts? One twelve and one four?
What are the times that are available for clinicals?
