At my school very few student's miss a clinical day. I think we started w/ about 95 day students and there are less than 8 that make up at the end of the semester- NOBODY misses. Unless your sick in the hospital yourself- you better be there- that's kind of the policy.

If you missed a clinical, you had to make it up on the following saturday; Here's the catch.... Saturday clinicals had to be a minimum of 10 hrs long...EACH! So basically if you missed a clinical, you had to pay a whopping $250.00 to make it up!!! You were allowed to miss 3 before you were dropped...Needless to say, I didn't end up going there!
