Report a Clinical Absence

Clinical practice is central to nursing and mandatory in the Baccalaureate Nursing Program at the Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing. Full participation in both clinical and classroom learning is integral to students’ success in the program and future excellence as practicing nurses.

These are guidelines for absences from Clinical Practice: Undergraduate Mandatory Clinical Attendance Guidelines (PDF) (To be updated Sept 2023).

Students must report any and all clinical absences through CORE

On the second consecutive day of absence the Verification of Student Illness or Injury form below must be completed by a Health Care Professional first and then uploaded with the Notification of Clinical Absence Form below. Please note that the University has suspended the need for a doctor’s note or medical certificate for absences that are related to students experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
