NYC Clinical Expectations for Fall Semester re: COVID

Posted

Specializes in Student.

So I am a student at SUNY Downstate, ABSN, due to graduate a year from now. Our first semester has just finished (Summer) and will be starting our second of four semesters in the fall. We had two classes this Summer with a clinical/lab component that were done completely virtually. We are awaiting official word on our clinicals for next fall, but we are hearing that one of our two clinicals could be totally online again this fall.

Just curious about what other students' expectations for clinicals in NYC are this fall. I know that Downstate in particular is in a hard spot, because its University Hospital of Brooklyn was the only state-run COVID-only hospital in the city, which made it a bit of a magnet during the peak of the crisis.

Look forward to hearing from people!
