Part time BOCES program; 2 years. First year, 2 days theory, 1 day lab and 2 days clinical, from 8 a.m. til 11 a.m. for all three. This follows the usual New York school year from early September until June 18th, then 2 weeks off, and on to 7:30 a.m. til 2:30 p.m. for the month of July. First week July, all theory, last three weeks, all clinical. Off for August, and back to school with all the New York school districts in September. 2nd year--2, 3-hour days of theory; 1, 3-hour of day lab (both from 12 noon to 3 p.m.) and 1, 7:30 - 2:30 day of clinical, with a day off (tentative). Sounds complicated, but our instructor had a goal of our getting full day clinicals in so we can do pre- and post-op, among other things. The afternoon hours will allow me to get my kids on and off the bus, and relieve my husband of the morning routine (which often doesn't go well!). It will also give my youngest the full, undivided attention of her caregiver, my aunt, instead of having to share her with my older children! Hey, I'll climb any mountain to get this goal met at this late date, you won't hear any complaining from me about scheduling or summer school...as of July 5th, 2004, I'm officially Level II and "half-a-nurse"!
