Information for Compliance with Health and Agency Mandates

Any students that is found to be out of compliance will be removed from clinical and will receive an unsatisfactory grade for each day he or she is out of compliance which may lead to course failure and therefore, failure to progress in the program. Please note that clinical begins the first week of each semester and includes experiences which occur in healthcare organizations, the community OR in the School of Nursing's Learning Resource Center.
