    I'm not entirely sure of the breakdown, but we get 4 blocks of 9 week sessions that are 40 hours per week. There are other blocks of time as well...but since I am not yet a student, I cant tell you much more!

    One thing i really like about my program is that we get an 'intersession' after all our courses are done. For years 2 and 3, we have classes from Sept til April, and then May is full time clinical. I think (not sure, i'm not there yet ... hehe) we get paired up w/ an RN who works in an area of our choice. Year 4 last sem is a whole semester of clinical ... Jan to April. Does everyone have that? (I'm in the BScN program in Ontario)
