Maximum Daily Clinical Hours Policy


Based upon current evidence, patient safety may be compromised in the clinical setting if health care professionals become fatigued. Therefore, it is the policy of the Department of Nursing that nursing students are not allowed to schedule longer than a 12 hour shift in the clinical setting per 24 hour period.
