In the 1918 pandemic they closed all the nursing schools and medical schools and sent the students to the bedside to work.

Are you saying that students and faculty couldn't be of help in a pandemic?

Not at all, just that there’s a lot more politics, legality, and red tape today than there was in 1918. Don’t get me wrong I really want to graduate on time and help and do my part, but I don’t know how many corners if any they’re gonna cut to allow it. 
 

For example, many of the nursing schools in CA are petitioning to the governor to increase the cap of 75% clinical time and 25% lab time to 50/50 to make up hours lost by hospitals kicking students out. But I don’t know if that’s going to fly with the governor.

my Class is still at the hospitals and the nurses on my floor are grateful For the extra help. They went from having almost 10 students a few times a week to having 3 of us each on different days days. The security guard told me this morning that some students were crying yesterday when they found out their school wouldn’t allow them back.

So as of last night, my program director said the two classes graduating in May should still graduate.  More junior cohorts have not received initial word, but the rumor for them is they're getting delayed at least 1 semester.  No official word yet.

Mine just got canceled and they will re-evaluate after Spring break. We will still graduate but with minimal preceptorship hours.

I bet they'll give you the option of attending a future ceremony with the next graduating class.

Students catching Covid-19 may be a liability issue for the hospitals.

They could definitely help, but nobody got sued in 1918.

As an ABSN student in Brooklyn we were told no more students at most of our clinical sites as of last weekend. Classes moved to online format. The goal is not to delay our graduation, so we are to complete some kind of virtual clinical hours with our instructors with hope that it will suffice/supplement the experiences we were undergoing and will be able to resume. Everything is still up in the air!
