Expectations for Clinical Practice Activities
What is required to be successful in The Hub?
Clinical course requirements completed with The Hub, including labs and simulations are mandatory. Failure to attend sessions in The Hub or clinical practice may result in a failing grade as per the TFSON's policy found in the Student Handbook and Academic Calendar:
"Attendance at learning centre sessions, orientation to clinical practice, and clinical practice is mandatory. Failure to attend learning centre sessions or clinical practice may result in a failing grade. Failure to attend orientation will result in the student being removed from the clinical practice course, and any related classroom co-requisites, for that term. A student may be required to attend orientation for clinical practice in the week before the actual start date of the term." Trent University Unergraduate Academic Calendar 2020-2021. 306.
