All students who are returning to complete their clinical placements and clerk-ships are required to self-quarantine in Kingston for two weeks prior to starting back at hospitals. While they are on-site at KHSC and Providence Care, students will follow staff safety policies and procedures, including completing training on current COVID-19-related protocol, adhering to the staff screening process, and conserving personal protective equipment.
“Having the opportunity to complete my clinical placement means that I can work towards graduating on time, allowing me to use the nursing skills I’ve learned at Queen’s to compassionately care for patients and families,” says returning student Bayley Morgan, a nursing student set to graduate this year. “I am eager to join our heroic nurses and health care workers in supporting those affected by illness and injury, and in contributing to a safe and respectful practice environment.”
Queen’s says that while it may not be business-as-usual, the clinical environment will offer a once-in-a lifetime opportunity for students, many of whom are close to graduating and in search of permanent employment.
