|General Policy||In keeping with the culture in Qatar, students will ensure coverage of shoulders, chest, upper legs and knees at all times.|
|Laboratory||Lab coats must be worn for all clinical laboratory sessions.
When you are handling sensitive materials or engaged in some clinical procedures you will be required to roll your sleeves up to just below the elbow.
You are responsible for keeping your laboratory coats in good repair and for ensuring that they are freshly laundered and pressed for each clinical laboratory session.
Important to remember:
Participation in all activities that are related to clinical courses is mandatory.
Failure to fully participate in clinical and tutorial sessions will be reviewed by the instructor and may result in a failing grade.
Missing one or more lab/clinical days will put you at risk of failing the course.
Non-attendance may result in your removal from the course.
Normally, students will not be permitted to withdraw from a clinical/lab course in order to avoid a failing grade.
Assessment of clinical performance is based largely on day-to-day performance.
Faculty members have the authority to remove a student from the clinical area for unsafe clinical practice or inappropriate behaviour. The Associate Dean will be consulted or informed about any such situation or action. A student who wishes to appeal such a decision will follow the appeals process as outlined in the Calendar.
The nurse to patient/client relationship places nurses and nursing students in a privileged position of accessing confidential information concerning patients, clients and classmates. Nurses and nursing students have a professional, moral and legal obligation to maintain strict confidentiality of any client/patient information or data. Students admitted to the University of Calgary in Qatar are required to sign a "Schedule B Acknowledgement and Undertaking" form.
