Clinical Attendance Policy:
The Virginia Board Of Nursing mandates clinical hour completion as a requirement to apply for licensure. EVCC provides clinical faculty for clinical instruction to meet the requirements of the VBON; and schedules clinical hours with approved clinical sites. To comply with the regulations set forth by the state of Virginia, EVCC Nurse education's clinical policy states all clinical hours are mandatory. Students must be on time and attend all clinical hours.
To minimize disruptions, staffing issues, and excessive missed time, EVCC will allow students to miss 2 days of clinical throughout the entirety of the program. Students will be required to make up all missed hours. The program does not differentiate from excused or unexcused, all absences are subjected to the 2-day limit. The program will make every attempt to schedule make up clinical experiences for the missed hours during the student's same semester period, however this is not always possible. Students who exceed 2 missed clinical days while enrolled in the program will be delayed in graduating and will make up the clinical hours with the next graduating cohort. EVCC administration will not attempt to staff further clinical experiences during the semester for any student who misses greater than 2 days.
