I’m finishing up term two! You go through the first 6 months before really knowing your clinical schedules, things about uniforms and labs ect. This information really isn’t talked about in depth until you start term 2! During your first lab you can wear whatever scrubs you have or if you don’t have any just buy really cheap ones! You won’t be sent an email with a link to buy your school scrubs until your in term 2. As far as clinicals and labs go everyone’s sample schedule is different because we all start at various times throughout the year and in different locations. You are completely at the hospitals mercy when it comes to clinicals. You are assigned a nurse to follow and you are on their specific schedule so if that nurse works weekend days nights spread out shifts back to back shift that’s what you will work! Wgu can not work around each students personal schedules and neither will the partner hospitals so you are expected to be there for labs and clinicals whenever their schedules even if given the schedule a day before. Most people use their vacation and pto for clinicals.
