1. What happens if you don't participate fully in your clinicals or you flunk out of clinicals but do extraordinary on tests and class/lab?

    In my school, not participating in clinicals = absence. If you can't do something, or won't, or if you are late, unprepared, not fully in uniform, etc. you get marked absent for that day. We can have 2 absences per semester. If you miss more than that, you automatically fail the course, regardless of your exam scores.

    You flunk.

    Yup, you would fail then.

    Yeah, that would equal a fail. We also could not be late or miss ANY clinicals. If you did, you were expected to make up the hours.

    Outstanding performance in class will not make up for inadequate performance in clinical, or excessive absences from clinical, in any nursing program I've ever attended or taught in. A student in that situation would fail out of the program.
