There’s no PPE to be had, and if there was, it shouldn’t be used on students. That being said, that’s not a risk I’d be willing to take. I’d take the term off.

What hospitals are allowing students in for clinical? I’d be super upset if we had students right now, and if they came and took our precious PPE.

Heck, we aren’t allowing orientees near the COVID patients to preserve PPE. If there’s any facilities taking these students, they must be on units not accepting these patients. And that’s a big IF.
