I am in the first Indiana cohort. For the first two terms (first year) you will do a clinical rotation at the end of the second month, beginning of the 3rd month. Each six month term is broken into two three month clinical courses. They schedule to have you finish your clinical a couple of weeks before the official end of the term so you have time to wrap up any loose ends. So, say a person started in January, they would be doing their clinical at the end of feb/beginning of march. You do non-clinical courses on the side. You also have a lab the first and second month, then a lab assessment you must pass to progress to clinicals. The first three months is foundations though, and there is no clinical for that class, only labs. Is this confusing yet? As for finding out anything, you kinda have to get used to hearing things at the last minute. I will be doing my OB in my next term starting in November, and I don't know where that will be! Because the program is new, there are a lot of kinks to work out. Believe me, being in the first cohort has been interesting. Overall though, I like the program and I would recommend it. The coursework is relevant and I feel well prepared for my clinicals, which I have done at the VA so far. The best part is the one on one clinical coach time. You have your very own nurse, and you work full shifts. This is awesome! Because of the full shifts, I have gotten to practice a lot of skills that traditional students may not get the chance to. My very first clinical I inserted a Foley! My last one, I got to start probably 6 IVs and did all kinds med admin and dressing changes. I'll be done in October, 2013, can't wait!!
