Review Section 4.3 Regulations for All Students which contains information regarding the Personal Health Information Act (PHIA), immunization and CPR regulations, and other information specific to clinical practice.
A clinical project course (normally designated by the fact that it is a 4 credit hour project based course) involves a heavier workload and time commitment than a 3 credit hour course. For most of these courses, clinical placements/assignments will be arranged between the course leader and student at or prior to the start of a term. However, for courses NURS 3200 and NURS 4210, students must contact the course leader at least three months prior to the start of classes to state their intention to register for these courses and to discuss preference of clinical sites. Placement sites will be arranged as requested by the student on a first-come, first-served basis according to the availability of the agency.
NURS 4210 Independent Study in Nursing
The student is responsible for choosing an area for completion of the practicum experience. The choice of subject, the proposed plan for completion of the study, and the faculty advisor selected by the student must all be approved by the Faculty of Nursing. In addition, the location of any practicum component must be approved by the Faculty of Nursing.
There may be organizations which require contractual arrangements with the student and/or the University of Manitoba prior to permitting the student to enter the practicum experience. There is no guarantee that the University of Manitoba will enter into a particular agreement and, if an agreement is not approved, the student would have to select an alternate practicum site. Any costs incurred in completing this course are the responsibility of the student.
Information sessions for NURS 4210 are held twice yearly, in October and in March. Refer to the BPRN News website for dates. Any student who is unable to attend the information session should contact the Course Leader at least 3 months prior to the start of the term in which the course is offered in order to discuss the proposal.
Note: the prerequisite for this course is 35 credit hours of completed study in the program.
