Attendance PolicyŚClinical (PN)

    1. One clinical absence equals six (6) hours.  After twelve (12) hours of clinical absences per semester, the student will receive a warning letter sent by the instructor; after eighteen (18) hours of clinical absences per semester, the student will receive an additional warning letter from the Site Director and will be presented to the total faculty by the Site Director for possible dismissal from the program. Because of limited clinical time, excessive lost time in the clinical area could jeopardize the ability to safely care for clients. At the recommendation of the Site Director and faculty, the individual student may be referred to the Director of the Nursing Education Programs or the appropriate Dean for a decision regarding continuation in the program.
    2. There will be no makeup of missed clinical days.
    3. Students are required to come to the clinical area prepared to safely care for assigned patients. They must review appropriate clinical skills as taught in skills laboratories and complete an adequate chart review. Students not adequately prepared will be considered unsafe and asked to leave the clinical area. This absence will be counted as a clinical absence.
