This section covers a broader range of policies related to various aspects of the institution, outlining general guidelines that students need to adhere to during their time with Good Nursing & Medical Training.
No cellular phones are to be used or left on during class, lab, or clinical. Phone use is limited only to emergencies. All other calls must be made and received during breaks. The student must leave the classroom to make and receive calls. Cellphones are not to be used in clinical areas or during clinical times. If the student has extenuating circumstances or emergencies, permission must be granted from the clinical instructor to use cell phones in a designated area as provided by the clinical instructor.
Physical Demands and Environmental Conditions
Students need to be aware that the following may occur: lifting during patient transfers, pushing wheelchairs up to 300 pounds, visual acuity to monitor and evaluate patients, ability to read and write, and exposure to infectious materials.
Students are not allowed to have visitors in the classroom while school is in session. Children are not allowed to be in the school while the student is in class.
In the event a student damages school property, the certificate of completion will not be released until the cost of damage to school property is replaced or paid for.
The code of conduct establishes professional standards for conduct, attitude, performance, and ethics while enrolled at Good Nursing and Medical Training. This applies to any class, lab, clinical rotation, or testing environment. Students must display professionalism and self-control to meet the demands of the healthcare environment. Disruptive behavior such as yelling, abusive language, and inappropriate language such as profanity will not be tolerated. Inappropriate discussion of personal problems during any phase of training and testing is not permitted. Failure to follow the code of conduct will result in immediate dismissal from the program.
All grievances need to be submitted in writing to the Administrator of Good Nursing and Medical Training via email at email@example.com. The grievance will be addressed in a timely manner. Each student has the right to file a grievance to complain. The school will follow up on each grievance within five (5) working days of submitting the request. Forms to document grievances are available at the office. If a student receives a grade that they believe is incorrect, the matter should first be discussed with the instructor. Direct communication between the student and the instructor is highly encouraged.
In order to clarify any questions about a grade or grading practices, a student should use the following procedures:
- Discuss the final grade with the appropriate instructor.
- If the student is not satisfied with the instructor’s explanation of how the grade was determined, the student shall submit a written appeal to the program coordinator. The student’s appeal must be signed and dated. The program coordinator will review the syllabus and how the final grade was determined with the instructor and will respond to the student in writing within five (5) business days.
- If the student is not satisfied with the decision of the program coordinator, the student may direct an appeal to the Owner/President. The student’s appeal must be written, signed, and dated. The Owner/President will review the syllabus and how the final grade was determined and will respond to the student in writing within five (5) business days. The decision of the Owner/President is final.
- Any other grievances not related to grading issues will be taken directly to the Owner/President. The Owner/President and Staff will then review the matter. Once the issues have been reviewed and investigated, a meeting will be arranged for all parties involved for a final resolution.
Unresolved issues in the Nursing Assistant Program may be referred to the Georgia Medical Care Foundation (GMCF). For all other programs, if there is no resolution, students can contact the Georgia NPEC.

In cases of termination by the school for inappropriate behavior, such as the use of profanity, yelling, tardiness, destruction of school property, sexual harassment, or verbal or non-verbal abuse, no refund will be issued. Withdrawal from the program must be requested in writing to the Director of the Program. A withdrawal does not cancel the student’s financial obligation. A student who does not formally withdraw from class is still responsible for all fees and associated expenses. A ‘’Business Office Hold’’ will be placed on the student’s record until the financial obligation has been paid. The refund policy will apply to students who withdraw or are terminated from the program. The student will be recorded as ‘released from the program’ on the date the student has signed the official termination/withdrawal form. If there is a withdrawal, dismissal, or termination from the program, all pertaining matters will be reviewed by the administration before a decision is made.
Sexual Harassment and Abuse
The School’s policy on sexual harassment prohibits, but is not limited to, the following conduct: Unwelcome sexual flirtations, advances, or propositions, unwelcome words, actions, or comments based on an individual’s gender, sexually suggestive or offensive personal references about an individual or subtle pressure or requests for dates or sexual activities. Absolutely no sexual harassment in any form will be tolerated and is grounds for instant dismissal. Verbal or physical abuse is zero tolerance. Vulgar or suggestive language, reference to racial, sexual, and ethnic, ridiculing or excluding other students, gang attire, and bullying will not be tolerated. Any action that makes a staff or another student feel threatened or unsafe is grounds for immediate dismissal from the program. For other disciplinary issues, one attempt will be made to address the problem with the student. Continuing problems can result in dismissal from the school. All employees and students are required to comply with this policy.
