Nursing students need to reach a certain number of clinical hours every week, and getting infected means they could be in jeopardy of reaching their required quota for graduation. Anna Mazursky, a senior nursing major, said her teachers have been flexible with students who have COVID-19. “They were very supportive and willing to work with me to get me through on time which was really comforting,” Mazursky said. However, Mazursky added that this does not mean that everyone infected will graduate on time. Mazursky was quarantined for two weeks but was given the opportunity to make up all of her lost clinical hours through alternative assignments. Although Mazursky received the staff assistance she needed to make up her clinical hours, the same privileges may not be available for those infected for longer durations of time. Junior Alice McWhorter said missing a few clinicals can quickly translate to failing the semester if students reach the maximum amount of warning points given to them for absences or tardies. Three staff members in the nursing department declined to comment on the matter at this time. last_img read more
