Please refer to the OTA Student Handbook for policies on make-up work and acceptable documentation for absenteeism.
Attendance in courses is a requirement of the College and linked with student success. The nursing program has established a programmatic attendance policy that will help facilitate the learning of required knowledge and technical skills. The program acknowledges that emergency circumstances can occur; such events will be taken under advisement by the Director or Assistant Director of Nursing. However, students must provide the Director with documentation supporting their reason for being late and/or absent. It is required that students contact their instructor ahead of time if they will not be able to attend class/clinical or will be arriving late.
It is expected that students will be on time and will stay the entire time. All lateness, early departure, or absences will be recorded. Excessive absences may lead to dismissal from the class and the student may be required to repeat the class.
