How many hours do you think a nursing student should spend in clinical's each week?
What are your proffessional opinions? How many hours are good? How many are the bare minimum? What's too much?
I ask because it's a hot topic at my school. Usually mentioned somewhere in the program dissing and one-up manship. :angryfire

I'm in an ADN program and we have clinical 2 days a week for 2 years. Our hours vary from semester to semester, but I think that we get a little over 700 hours total. But to answer your question: We spend about 12 - 15 hours a week in clinical. I think nursing students should have a minimum of 12 hours per week. I think anything over 20 hours is too much.
