Hello. I'm a junior in the nursing program at a university in upstate New York. I had a question for all of you RN students out there about your clinical rotations. I am about to be a senior next year and I have yet to really get a clinical experience. Last semester (which was my first nursing semester) I had no clinical. We just had weekly skills labs that lasted like 8 hours where we learned HIPAA, injections and stuff like that. Then this semester I had my clinical experience in labor and delivery and then in a women's health clinic. I got to see a vaginal birth and give some depo shots, but that was about it. The whole clinical experience lasted 6 weeks. Other students were in schools and other places where they got zero hands-on experience except for two days spent in a hospital. Alot of my classmates were turned down from internships in NYC including myself due to lack of med-surg experience. I know that I will get alot more experience during my senior year but I wanted to know if any of you had similar experiences. If any of you could tell me about your clinical experiences it would be really helpful because alot of us are considering approaching faculty with complaints about getting denied by hospitals outside of this area due to lack of clinical experience. Thanks for your help.
