Clinical Expectations

Clinical experience is an essential part of the BN program. The student will develop a broad range of competencies that will enable him/her to practice in a variety of clinical settings.

Criminal Record, Child Abuse Registry Check and Adult Abuse Registry Checks are required prior to admission to the BN program. For more information, please contact the Student Advisor at (204) 571-8567.

Clinical placements may be set up in Brandon, the surrounding area, or in other locations within the province. Students are responsible for all expenses incurred (ie transportation, accommodation). Students are expected to comply with the policies of any agency selected for clinical experience which may include Criminal Record and Child Abuse Registry Checks, Privacy of Information Act, Pledge of Confidentiality signing, immunizations and dress codes.

It is a fundamental expectation that students provide safe, ethical care to clients. The Faculty of Health Studies may require any student to withdraw from a clinical course or the program, based on consideration of competence, professional conduct or health.
