OK...Our school is located in the "capital" of this state, has it's own hospital but, our clinicals are 45 miles away. On the other hand, the University that is located in the same area as our clinicals do their clinicals here
How much sense does that make?
How far are your clinicals and why?

Last semester, I only had to travel about 10 miles. This semester, one of my clinicals is about 30 min away, and the other is 45 min away. We also have to do a rotation through one of the state mental hospitals, and that is 80 miles away. It is a two day clinical, so a few of us are going to get a hotel room so we don't have to drive back the next day.
Personally, I don't mind the drive. I like that we get to rotate through many different hospitals. At the end of this semester (my second) I will have rotated through 3 different hospitals.

Most of my clinicals also required the "night before" visit. The only ones that didn't were OB (the stay is so short-term that your patient may not even be there the night before) and psych.
