Practica and Student Teaching

In recognition of increased demands related to workload, scheduling, and required travel, students may be exempted from labor for participation in the following experiences:

  • Nursing Clinical (fall term of final year; students required to attend clinical on Tuesdays from 2:00 p.m. - 7:00 pm)

Students are responsible for finding a primary labor position that would not require them to participate in the Tuesday labor meeting.

  • Nursing Clinical (four week summer term - students are exempted from labor)
  • Nursing Practicum (NUR 349 and NUR 450, final spring term)
  • Student Teaching (EDS 282, EDS 292 or EDS 296 final term)

Students participating in a nursing practicum or student teaching experience should complete a status form listing “0” hours, no labor and the reason under “department” and have a member of their faculty sign as the supervisor. Students should notify their labor supervisors in advance of hiring that they will have an exemption during this term, as some departments may not be able to support a mid-year release.

Although not required, students may elect to work on campus while participating in these experiences. Students should complete the process above for a primary exemption and then secure a secondary status form for the desired number of hours (the work is performed in a primary manner, but our scholarship payment system records the hours as a secondary labor assignment so that the hours are recorded as optional and not required).
