1.Regulatory: Students practice within the boundaries of the Texas Nursing Practice Act, the ANA Code of Ethics, the guidelines, objectives and policies of the Vocational Nursing Program; and the rules and regulations of the health care agency where they are assigned for clinical learning experiences.
2. Ethical: The student performs according to the guidelines of the American Nursesí Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice, and the Texas Nursing Practice Act.
3. Biological, Psychological, Social, and Cultural Realms: The studentís performance meets the needs of the human system from a biological, psychological, sociological, and cultural standpoint at the level of the course objectives.
4. Accountability: The studentís performance demonstrates continuity in the responsible preparation, documentation, and promotion for the care of clients, according to course objectives.
5. Human Rights: The studentís performance demonstrates respect for the individual, client, health team member, faculty, and self including but not limited to the legal, ethical, and cultural realms.
6. Code of Ethics:
The Vocational Nursing faculty subscribe to the American Nursesí Association Code of Ethics*. Students are expected to learn and perform in accordance with this code.
Students must be present the entire clinical day, including post-conference to get credit for their attendance.
1. A student who is absent from clinical without notification to faculty, may be withdrawn from the program by the program director.
2.Since clinical is such an important component of the VN Program, students are required to attend 100 per cent of the scheduled clinical days in any given semester. Additional written work will be required if the student is absent from clinical. Any student who misses any clinical days in a semester may receive an unsatisfactory (U) in the clinical course and be required to repeat both the didactic and clinical courses. Absence of the required clinical days necessitates the Standards Committee to review the studentís performance in the VN Program. Students who:
a. Have a 75 test average in the didactic course
b. Have satisfactory written work in the clinical course
c. Are up-to-date on skills check-offs in clinical
prior to the most recent absence may be allowed to continue in clinical. Students will be required to do additional written work to continue in clinical. Students who do not meet the above criteria may be dismissed for the semester.
