Emergencies and Inclement Weather
In the event of an emergency, the school will notify the student of any class/clinical delay or cancellation. In the event of inclement weather, such as ice, sleet, flooding, and any other natural reasons, the school will close when County Schools where the school is located are closed. Evening class students will be contacted. When class/clinical is delayed, the time must be made up. Scheduling conflicts may result in the student finishing class with the next scheduled class.
Signing In and Out of Class
Students must sign the attendance sheet for every class attendance. Students are responsible for keeping up with their own sign-in sheet for class, lab, and clinical. Attendance sheets are provided by the school.
Makeup days will fall on Fridays for students who are absent. Students must call the school to notify staff of lateness or absence. Please leave a message if there is no answer. Notification by anyone other than the student will not be accepted and will compromise the student’s enrollment status. Any absences must be made up according to the course specifications. Extensive absences and tardiness will result in dismissal from the program. It is the student’s responsibility to consult with the instructor for the requirements and date of make-up work.
Clinical time will not be made up in the CNA Course. Any missed clinical in the CNA Course will have to be rescheduled for the next class session, resulting in delayed program completion and state testing. For other courses, please review the specifics for each program offered.
At the start of class, the student will be given a syllabus. Textbooks will be issued on the first day of class, and students are to bring their books to school. Students must bring a notebook, pen, pencils, and erasers as needed. If the student loses the textbook/s, the student must purchase a new book. Students may not go through the program without the appropriate materials. Students will use the workbook to complete assignments. Students must read over the material before and after each class and complete assignments for the next day.
Criteria for Passing the Course
To pass a course at GNMT, the student must maintain an average of 70% or above on all tests, including the weekly quiz and the final exam. Students must satisfactorily complete all required skills with a passing grade. The student will complete the clinical session with 100% attendance and a passing grade. Students must attend all course hours as approved and presented by Good Nursing and Medical Training. Students below 70% or a ‘C’ will need remediation. Assistance from instructors will be available if necessary. Instructors are available for remediation and advisement.
Testing and Final Exams
Tests are scheduled according to the syllabus. No test or exam will be given unless the student has completed the required segments of each lesson. Students must arrive on time in order to take any test or exam. Only one makeup test date is allowed. It is the student’s responsibility to consult with their instructor for the requirements and date of their make-up test or exam.
Students must successfully pass a final exam with the school to graduate. If a student is unable to pass the skill demonstrations in the lab, the student will not be allowed to attend clinical until the skills are mastered in the lab. Any cheating during a test of any kind will be grounds for dismissal from the school, including but not limited to talking, discussing, or reviewing any items on the exam with anyone else during the exam, consulting books, or notes.
Before starting clinical, the student must:
- Pass all skills in the lab at 100%
