whats your schedule like?

  1. For all of you who are in nursing school in the tulsa and surrounding areas, what's your schedule like and what school are you going to and how well do you like it? I am very curious to know what kinds of schedules everybody has when it comes to nursing school!

    I am not in Tulsa but OKC area. Our schedual is different every semester and even changes at the 8 week mark when we switch clinicals.

    We have lectures on Mon and Fri. Clinicals for the first 8 weeks ( for OB) were 12 hour day shifts, now that I am doing Peds at Childrens we have clinicals broken up in the evenings for 8 hrs at a time 2 days a week, we are usually there till about 10pm. So right now that gives me tuesdays off to study (or not...haha).

    Anyways I'm at UCO and LOVE it

    But like everyone else said, clinical times vary by the semester and the clinical. We do though have clinical anywhere from 2-3 days a week though (critical care clinicals are 3 days a week for example, OB and peds, Med/surg is 2 days a week as a general rule).

    I'm first semester at osu-okc. As first semester students we are in class two days a week and clinical once every other week. I think it changes each semester.

    I'm in OKC as well and go to OCU, love it. I'm at the end of my 2nd semester (next Wednesday is my last final - yay!). Our schedules vary each semester to an extent, but as a general rule we have theory/lecture classes on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Wednesday afternoons we go to the clinical sites to get patient assigments (except for mental health) and spend that afternoon/evening working on preclinical assignments (looking up meds, patho-phys, etc.). On Thursdays and Fridays we have clinicals - and whether that is 7-3 or 3-11 depends on which clinical rotation it is and all of that... Care plans and post-clinical assignments are usually due Monday before class starts. All in all, it's a pretty good schedule except that next fall our Monday and Tuesday classes are in the afternoon and it really messes up my day - I'd prefer to get it over with early and have the rest of the day for studying and those other fun things like laundry, errands, cooking dinner...
