Just a quick question regarding the practicum for the RN-BSN program. I'm going to be starting my 3rd month of the program on Oct 1st and have consistantly finished 3 classes a month. I understand that could change depending on the difficulty of the class, however I have 4 classes left to complete minus the practicum. My student mentor keeps stressing not starting the practicum until the next term starts in February, but I'm not seeing why that's so important. If I do finish my classes by the end of November is it not possible for me to then complete the practicum using the months of December and January? What am I missing here? I know there are 90 hours that need to be logged, however I work pool nursing so my schedule is flexible. My mentor is aware of this as well.
Any advice? What am I missing in regards to the practicum that makes it not doable in 2 months?
