At the discretion of the faculty a student will be asked to withdraw from a course if the following absences or tardiness are exceeded:
Absence - Two absences from scheduled laboratory or clinical experience regardless of time involved or clinical allocation.
Tardiness - Tardiness of greater than 30 minutes in a scheduled laboratory or clinical experience to be counted as one absence at the discretion of the instructor.
Note: Regardless of attendance, a student may fail a practicum at any time during the semester for either a pattern of unsafe nursing behavior or a particularly serious incident of unsafe nursing behavior. At the faculty's discretion a learning plan may be put in place based upon the student's performance. Once a student is informed that s/he is failing a clinical course withdrawal from that course is no longer an option.
Absence: In a 2 credit course, maximum of three class hours.
In a 3 credit course, maximum of four class hours.
In a 4 credit course, maximum of five class hours.
Tardiness: Tardiness of greater than ten minutes is counted as one absence.
