Academic Halt

Posted

Hello,

I am currently taking medsurge 1 and pharma 1 right now. Is it true that some nursing schools will have an academic halt due to not having clinicals?

My program stated that we will still be going to clinical in the Fall.

Depends on the school and their clinical sites. Many hospitals are still not allowing nursing students on their units.

I agree that it depends on the school. The hospitals aren't letting students in for risk of PPE shortages and the recent spike in Covid-19 cases. My school moved to online clinical since the mid-March so that we can graduate on time. We've been using online simulations with Shadowhealth and vSim. Recently, they've added in KeithRN.com unfolding cases for us to develop critical thinking.

I just hope that sites would start allowing students in so that I can actually have hands-on experience instead of talking to virtual patients.
