Under normal circumstances, it takes four to six weeks to complete your clinical shifts.

Attendance Requirements

 

Didactic / Lecture

Attendance is mandatory as all students are required to have at least forty hours of didactic training set forth by the state of California. Students may miss a maximum of one four hour lecture or portion thereof for sessions that are eight hours. The student is responsible for all missed lecture material. If a student misses a lecture exam, the exam may be made up by taking it during an exam retake date but it will count as one of the two retake exams. Practical skill sessions may not be missed. Any absence must be supported with documentation and presented to the program director before the next session.

Clinical Rotations

Per the state of California, students are expected to complete no less than 40 hours in the clinical environment. Students are required to attend every clinical shift and orientation as assigned. Any absence must be reported to the clinical site and program director, along with providing supporting documentation. It is expected that students will be absent only for unexpected illnesses. No more than one excused, canceled, or rescheduled shift will be allowed per student. More than two undocumented absences may result in removal from the clinical phase of training and program.
