Precepting and graduation

  1. I am in my last term in nursing school....yay!!! I am curious about the required hours that other students must complete to graduate. I need 96 hours of precepting time over 2 1/2 weeks. We also get about 5 weeks of management (didn't calculate the hrs).

    What does your program require for graduation?

    Yeah - Congrats on the the end!! Ours is 40 hours total in 2 weeks. But mostshift now around me are 12 hours, so we will really be doing 48 hours, as we cannot just split it for the hours we need. It somehow will all work out!! 8 more weeks for me!! Congrats - YOu can do it!

    We have 160 hours to complete in 5 weeks. I will start mine next fall. It is going to be a crazy time between that and the other courses we are still required to take. Congrats on almost being done.
