anyone attending the weekend option nursing program, what are your thoughts about it?

I am a student in the weekend program, just started this semester and I like it so far. However, because it is weekends only, clinical sites are limited. The weekday students seem to have more of a variety of hospital sites than we do (however you do not get to choose where you go- you rank in order of where you would prefer to go and they try to match as best they can). I know some students who graduated from the program last year and they said they liked the program, and their only criticism is that they thought they had less clinical time than other programs. Our class is the "test class" for the new curriculum. they restructured for this year and we will be getting more clinical time in the Spring (still only on weekends) The schedule is classes on Saturdays from 8:30am and the end time varies (anywhere from 2:00-5:00p) and then clinicals in the hospital on Sundays (7am-1pm). They did say that every student in last year's graduating class passed the N-Clex
