Curious about program cumulative clinical hours...


Hi all,

I was just re-reading my school's admission book, it says that my program has a total of 625.5 clinical hours upon finishing the RN program.

Is this comparable to everywhere else? I chose this school because of the hands on learning and clinical time, but I was wondering if this is the average.

Mine is a little over 1000 (112 per class, 9 classes).

We have 1000 hrs., but our program runs longer than some. We do 6 semesters of nursing classes.

I attend a CC in Indiana and we have approx. 900 hours. This is for an ASN program that is only 4 semesters. :)

Mandarella, I'm curious -- what were the totals of clinical hours at other programs you looked at?

I have absolutely nothing to add to this thread (don't know yet) but wanted to know how you BOLDED your thread title? Wondered that for a LONG time. Can't get it to work for me. Do tell.
