Nursing students in good standing who are academically eligible to enter clinical education must complete all requirements and submit accompanying documentation to participate in the clinical component of the course. Documents verifying completion of requirements are maintained in each student’s confidential Nursing Student Clinical E-Portfolio in the Nursing Department’s student database.
CLINICAL FOLDER REQUIREMENTS MUST BE COMPLETED AND SUBMITTED IN 2 STEPS (STEP 1 AND STEP 2) FOR SOPHOMORES AND 2 STEPS (STEP 3 AND STEP 4) FOR JUNIORS – AS ILLUSTRATED IN TABLE BELOW:
|STEP 1||DUE FRIDAY – AUGUST 19, 2016||SOPHOMORE|
|STEP 2||DUE FRIDAY – OCTOBER 1, 2016||SOPHOMORE|
|STEP 3||DUE FRIDAY – AUGUST 19, 2016||JUNIOR|
|STEP 4||DUE FRIDAY – OCTOBER 1, 2016||JUNIOR|
YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR READING CAREFULLY AND COMPLYING WITH ALL INSTRUCTIONS AND DEADLINES SPECIFIED IN THIS MEMO.
Failure to submit required documentation by established deadlines will prohibit involvement in on-site clinical education. Additional consequences for non-compliance may include de-registration from the course, grading penalties in related courses and clinical assessments, and/or other appropriate disciplinary action.
Inability to get an appointment for services (exams, vaccinations, fingerprinting, etc.) in time to meet deadlines is NOT an acceptable excuse for missing documentation. Students are responsible for scheduling all appointments with enough lead time to meet the clinical requirement deadlines. Do NOT leave appointment scheduling until the “last minute.”
Students are required to maintain the original of all submitted documentation for their personal records, except for the criminal background record check, which requires submission of the original document to the Nursing office. Please note that office staff members are NOT permitted to make copies for students.
Students also are personally responsible for maintaining an accurate and fully completed Student Nursing Clinical E-Portfolio throughout their progression in the BSN curriculum. Students must ensure that all certifications that require renewal are met and proper documentation is submitted to the Nursing office. Students are responsible for knowing and adhering to specific deadlines for each item requiring annual or biannual renewal, such as CPR certification, for example. The office staff is not responsible for reminding students and/or checking the Clinical E-Portfolio for renewal deadlines. Remember, failure to maintain renewal of required items will prohibit you from entering and/or completing clinical courses, and may delay or prevent progress in the major.
STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO COMPLETE MOST REQUIREMENTS OVER THE SUMMER MONTHS.
