Clinical Hours in AZ

Posted

Specializes in EMS.

I'm an EMT in central Phoenix who is at one of the state nursing schools. I'm more than halfway through my program and will be graduating soon but because of the coronavirus, have only had med-surg and OB clinicals. We were just informed that we wouldn't have critical care clinicals in-person either. I will be taking the NCLEX having never had pediatric, psych, or critical care contact hours and this makes me really nervous. Are there any independent clinical hours I can accrue (especially in ICU/ED/Peds)? I've reached out to a few critical care trucks and rural ERs but my university isn't affiliated and it looks like the college administration isn't going to make any effort to change that.

Thank you Phoenix area nurses!
