Clinicals for FALL

Specializes in ICU, Med-Surg, Neuro, Education.

Here we are again!! It's planning time for fall. 

With all the COVID stuff going on, what are nursing programs in your areas doing for hands-on clinical experiences? Are hospitals still allowing students in your areas? Are schools allowing students to have in person rotations? Are you doing online simulations/case studies/projects?

We allowed students at the school associated with the hospital to return at the end of June. Students from other schools are still on hiatus until at least 2021.

Is there any plan for if a second wave comes in October? Here we are concerned they may close hospitals to students again when there is another wave (though it seems we never left the first one 🙄). We are trying to decide between doubling up on clinicals, using weekend time, front loading clinicals, etc. 

My LPN program is having clinical on campus for a half day and one day virtual. We normally go to a facility two days per week. This is a new plan so I don’t know how it’s going to work yet. At least they can practice injections and on the simulation manakins.
