The university will consider a declaration in lieu of other documentation (such as a doctor’s note). Therefore, if you miss an assignment or are absent from the following:

  • Clinical time
  • Skills lab
  • Term test

You must:

  1. Notify your CEF and unit immediately for clinical absences
  2. Complete and submit a declaration form within 24 hours of your absence. Ensure you have spelled your course leader’s email correctly. One copy will be kept on file and one copy will be sent to your course leader.

A completed declaration form is required for each day you are absent.

False statements regarding a declaration may result in disciplinary action, up to removal of a student from the program.

  • Display the UM College of Nursing crest on the left sleeve of your uniform.
  • Wear a name tag.
  • Purchase crests and name tags from the UM Bookstore.

Under your uniform, you can wear navy blue or white sweaters or long-sleeved undershirts, available for purchase anywhere.

You have two clinical days per week, so ensure your uniform is clean at the start of each day. Consider buying a minimum of two tops and two pants.

For uniform fittings, contact the Nursing Students’ Association (NSA).

Voluntary withdrawal

What if I’m considering withdrawing from a course?
If you are considering withdrawing from a course, please discuss this with a student advisor or the nursing registration consultant as this will significantly impact your program progression. Immediately inform the course leader when you withdraw. Please ensure you are familiar with the College of Nursing academic regulations regarding voluntary withdrawals.

When does a withdrawal go on my student history?
Withdrawing from a course during the Registration Revision period is not counted as a voluntary withdrawal. Only courses for which a ‘VW’ code appears on the Student History are considered voluntary withdrawals.

Professionalism

As a professional degree program, the Bachelor of Nursing program is designed for students to develop competencies, behaviors, and attitudes which reflect the public’s expectations of a practicing health care professional. This document provides the guidelines necessary for students to meet professionalism expectations in practice-based courses in the Bachelor of Nursing program.

Guidelines for professional behaviour

In the Bachelor of Nursing program, all practice-based learning courses require students to exhibit professional behavior consistently.

Professionalism involves demonstrating seriousness, maturity, punctuality, full engagement (mentally and physically), preparation, and adherence to safety and confidentiality principles.

Students are expected to actively participate in all learning opportunities.

Instances of unprofessional conduct will be reported to the Course Leader and Program Directors. Failure to improve may lead to the risk of failure in the course.

Approach nursing courses (theory, labs, simulation-based education, and clinical practice) with the same attitudes and standards of practice expected in a professional setting.

Any student displaying unprofessional behaviors toward peers, colleagues, faculty, clients, or the public may face disciplinary action according to the University of Manitoba Student Discipline By-Law.

Preparedness and participation

Prepare: In order for you to obtain the maximum benefit from lab and instruction time, it is important that you prepare for the learning activity.

You may be provided with readings, reference material or direction for self-study.

You are expected to be familiar with this material when you come to classes, labs, simulation and clinical practice.

Bring learning materials to sessions: This may include your laptop, required textbooks, handouts, instructional videos or other specified learning materials or equipment.

In addition to learning materials, students are also advised to bring their own personal equipment (e.g., stethoscope, skills lab kits, etc.) as indicated in the course communications (e.g., syllabi, UM Learn).

Attend all classes, labs, simulations and clinical shifts: Attendance is expected of all students in all courses.

There are some instances where absence is excusable: You are advised to stay home when ill to minimize the spread of the illness to classmates and to ensure a quick recovery.

If an absence cannot be avoided, notice should be provided as soon as possible to the course leader.

Practice-based courses such as skills labs, simulation, and clinical shifts generally cannot be made up, and absence may jeopardize your progression in the program.

Persistent non-attendance may result in debarment from classes or assessments, and failure in that course.

Participate in learning sessions: Mastering skills such as communication, collaboration, hands-on expertise, critical thinking and reflection require practice.

Learning activities are designed for you to practice technical and non-technical skills, and learners should participate to their fullest extent. 

Reflect on how and what you are learning: Given the exponential growth of knowledge in health sciences and the rapid change within the health environment, it is essential that you develop problem-solving skills.

Reflective practice helps consolidate your values, beliefs and behaviors.

Punctuality and attendance

The Practice Directions established by the College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba (CRNM) state that a nurse must demonstrate professional behaviours, attributes and values, promote a practice environment that supports responsibility, professional development and a respectful attitude, and take personal responsibility for professional conduct and fitness to practice (CRNM, 2018).

The nursing student is expected to meet the same standards.

It is your professional responsibility to maintain your state of health and recognize the impact ill health may have on patients and colleagues.

To fulfill course requirements, attendance at all scheduled clinical days is required.

If you are ill or experience an unforeseen circumstance, you must inform your Course Leader, Clinical Education Facilitator (CEF), and/or preceptor as soon as possible.

If you miss one or more days, you may be asked to withdraw from the course and restart the course at a later date.

As each situation may be unique, your situation will be reviewed by the Course Leader, Director Clinical or Skills/Simulation and the Associate Dean, Undergraduate Programs.

As per the College of Nursing Academic Regulations, attendance in the clinical practice/laboratory portions of Nursing courses is mandatory to enable the student to satisfy the evaluative criteria of the theoretical and practical components of courses.

Students are expected to be on time for every learning activity and clinical shift.

Instructors will begin and end all classes and clinical shifts on time.

Late arrivals are disruptive and unprofessional.

Professional behaviour – incivility, rudeness and disrespectful behaviour

Rady Faculty of Health Sciences and the College of Nursing are committed to ensuring safe, respectful, and supportive working and learning environments in which all of the RFHS community are enabled and encouraged to excel.

Discrimination and harassment of and by students, faculty and staff are prohibited.

People and equipment must be treated with respect at all times.

Rudeness and incivility are unacceptable.

Please see the University’s Respectful Work and Learning Environment policy for detail.
