    Are you a Junior or Senior @ UP?
    I am a sophmore. I wonder what clinicals will be like?

    Senior UP nursing student here. Clinicals have gone well for me. All med-serg clinicals are in a dedicated education unit (DEU) The nurses actually want you there. You have the same nurse instructer all 7 or so weeks. You really learn a lot because you dont have to re-orient yourself with a new nurse every week. By the end of the rotation, you kinda feel that you ((belong)). That is nice.....

    What is the first semester of junior year like at UP? I have heard some nightmare stories! So at Up we don't start clinicals until the 2nd semester of our Junior year right? What hospitals do we do clinicals at?

    Any UP Prov scholars? I was wondering about the program: what got you in?

    The first semester is not easy, but it is definitely doable. The key is time management. The first semester of the junior year there is one clinical day. We go to the VA SNU (skilled nursing unit), which is basically a nursing home, in Vancouver and give the client's bed baths, check their vital signs, etc...

    I'm also a Prov Scholar and would be glad to answer any questions you have about the program. Ask away.
