Failure to Safely Meet Clinical Objectives Policy

Process of Clinical Failure

First failure to meet clinical objectives

  • The student meets with the instructor in a formal conference to review criteria for clinical skill or behavior.
  • The student demonstrates the skill/behavior at a specified time* after remediation.

Second failure to meet clinical objectives

  • The student meets with the instructor in a formal clinical warning conference to review written criteria for continued participation in the course.
  • The student repeats the skill/behavior at a specified time* after remediation.
  • The student is notified of the penalty for a third failure to meet clinical objectives.

Third failure to meet clinical objectives

  • The student meets with the instructor and/or other faculty members to discuss educational options.
  • Immediate clinical failure from CCCC nursing course – the student is not allowed to continue.

*Failure to keep an appointment for a repeat skill demonstration is the same as an unsuccessful demonstration.

Note: A student who is placed on clinical warning for unsafe or unprofessional conduct will fail clinically for any subsequent safety or professional conduct violations at any time during the Program.
