ATTENDANCE: Two (2) days of clinical absences are allowed each semester. For each absence after the two allowable absences, the returning student must bring a doctor’s excuse and a receipt of service from the care provider. For each clinical day missed after the 2-day allowance, 5 points per absence will be subtracted from the final clinical grade and you are required to make-up the time missed starting within in two weeks. You must contact the Clinical Instructor and Clinical Coordinator (Mrs. Phifer) if you going to be absent. Excessive absences (more than 3) will result in a referral to the Dean of the College, and may result in a dismissal from the program. Unexcused absences cannot be tolerated. If extenuating circumstances occur, (for example: surgery, car accidents, death in family) the Clinical Coordinator will make arrangements on an individual basis.
Tardiness: Time missed being tardy should be made up at the end of the assigned shift the same day. This will be recorded as a tardy. Three (3) tardies within one semester will result in the deduction of 5 points from your final clinical grade.
ACADEMIC DISHONESTY POLICY: Academic dishonesty (cheating, plagiarism, etc.) will not be tolerated in this class and may result in suspension or dismissal from this course and from the program. Cases will be referred to the Dean of Students for possible dismissal from the university.
