This page outlines our policies and guidelines, ensuring a conducive and respectful learning environment for all students. Familiarizing yourself with these policies is essential to maintain a harmonious educational experience and to adhere to the standards expected of our students.
Professional Behavior/Standards/Dress Code
The code of conduct sets the professional standards for conduct, attitude, performance, and ethics while enrolled in coursework at Good Nursing and Medical Training, including the classroom, lab, clinical facility, and competency testing. Students are expected to show respect to instructors, staff, and patients. Disruptive behavior or inappropriate language, such as profanity, slang words, and derogatory comments, will not be tolerated. Students should not discuss personal problems or issues with externship/clinical site staff. Students should never attempt to perform skills for which they have not been trained or signed off as competent by their instructor.
While attending classroom lectures, lab skills, and clinical externships, you represent Good Nursing and Medical Training. The externship site will observe your work ethic, attitude, professionalism, and dress. You will be expected to maintain professionalism at all times, including presenting to the class and the externship site, being on time, wearing the proper uniform, and maintaining a professional attitude with patients, staff, instructors, etc. The first offense for failure to do so will result in a verbal warning. The second offense will result in a written warning and will be part of the permanent student record. The third offense will result in immediate dismissal from the program without a refund. More severe offenses may also result in immediate dismissal from the program.
The school is designated as a drug-free and smoke-free facility. The following activities are prohibited while the student is on school property or otherwise engaged in student activities:
- The manufacture, possession, use, sale, distribution, dispensation, receipt, or transportation of any controlled substances or illegal drugs. This includes all forms of narcotics, hallucinogens, depressants, stimulants, and other drugs whose use, possession, or transfer is restricted or prohibited by law.
- The consumption of alcoholic beverages.
- Being under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs, or controlled substances in any manner during school hours or clinical hours, whether or not it was consumed on school premises, and whether or not it was consumed outside of school hours.

Students must display professionalism with classmates, instructors, staff, and members of the healthcare team. Students must practice safety and report appropriate information, such as changes or problems in residents, to instructors and/or appropriate staff members. Students must follow and adhere to HIPAA Guidelines. No sleeping or distracting behavior during class. Cheating is a reason for immediate dismissal. Students must bring textbooks and other school supplies needed for classroom and learning activities.
A student who engages in such behavior will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including expulsion from the school.
- Students may dress comfortably for the classroom and lab. This attire must be appropriate and non-revealing. Students may wear scrubs in the classroom if they desire.
- Students must present to clinical sites in appropriate uniforms as assigned by the school. Scrubs and jackets must be free from wrinkles and stains. Shoes should be non-skid and clean with heels covered. No clogs with openbacks are allowed.

- Your undergarments should not be visible underneath your uniform. Tattoos must be covered in the clinical area.
- No odors of perfume, cologne, hairspray, or deodorant (for the safety of residents and classmates with allergies).
- Fingernails are to be short and neatly trimmed. No acrylics and nail extensions are allowed while in the program.
Students have the right to examine certain files, academic records, and documents maintained by the school, which pertain to them. The Program Director will supervise the students’ records. Students may request a review of their records with the Program Director. Such review will be allowed during regular business hours under appropriate supervision.
Maintenance in the Nursing Assistant Training Program
After all the requirements are met, the school will decide if the student will be accepted into the relevant training program. No student will be added to the roster after the second day of class. All programs will consist of classroom, lab, and clinical sections. Students must complete 100% of each section. Students will be required to submit to a drug test any time prior to the first day of clinical. If the student’s result is positive, the student is responsible for obtaining a more comprehensive drug screening at the student’s own cost prior to the first day of clinical. Good Nursing and Medical Training may then require periodic random drug testing. This is for your safety as well as for the safety of the clients we will serve. The student will be charged for any required or relevant drug testing.
