Expectations for Students and Instructors

With the intent of fostering a mutually beneficial and meaningful experience for all involved, our guidelines outline expectations for both students and instructors during their time at St. Luke's.

Expectations for Students

  • Complete required orientation and onboarding. Attend required unit/clinic tours and training.
  • Adhere to all St. Luke's policies including parking, dress code, badge, and cell phone use. All tattoos are to be covered during activities on St. Luke's campuses.
  • Keep all personal items in a locked/secure location. Due to space limitations, all personal items except what you can carry must be locked in your vehicle or a designated student locker.
  • Be prepared to communicate course learning objectives and/or daily objectives to St. Luke's staff. It is St. Luke's culture to encourage active participation and provide opportunities for students to have a hands-on experience.
  • Actively engage in all learning opportunities as appropriate and assume responsibility for your own learning by seeking out information, asking appropriate questions and utilizing resources.
  • Discuss any issues or concerns that arise with your preceptor, faculty, charge nurse, nursing supervisor, site manager or director at the time of the event.
  • Have immediate access to your faculty’s contact information.
  • Complete the annual St. Luke's student educational experience survey and provide necessary feedback regarding educational experiences at St. Luke’s – we want to know how we're doing!
  • Behave in a professional manner, demonstrating and role-modeling St. Luke’s values of integrity, compassion, accountability, respect and excellence (iCARE).

Students NOT accompanied by faculty for a student educational experience will also: 

  • Contact preceptor before arrival to review goals, schedule, and expectations. 
  • Follow their preceptor’s schedule.

Expectations for Instructors

  • Communicate with unit/clinic leadership and UBE (unit-based educator) before the students arrive. 
  • Provide written information (i.e., syllabus) about clinical goals and expectations prior to students arriving for the rotation. It is St. Luke's culture to encourage active participation and provide opportunities for students to have hands-on experiences.
  • Provide unit/clinic and St. Luke's student services with a comprehensive schedule for the student(s) rotation(s), including dates and hours students will be on site. Instructors will notify unit and St. Luke's student services immediately of any changes to the calendar.
  • Review goals and expectations for the rotations, as well as expectations around communication and presence on the unit.
  • Clarify chain of command for reporting concerns. Safety or compliance issues must be reported immediately. Notify the appropriate St. Luke's student coordinator. Students who are practicing unsafely will be removed from patient care immediately and their instructor will be notified to debrief/discuss course of action with student. 
  • Connect with staff/preceptors on a regular basis to gather information regarding student progression toward goals. For instructors not on site, instructor and preceptor will agree on appropriate check-in intervals during initial conversation.
  • Facilitate student participation in St. Luke’s student educational experience surveys and provide necessary feedback regarding student educational experiences at St. Luke's – we want to know how we're doing!
  • Behave in a professional manner, demonstrating and role-modeling St. Luke’s values of integrity, compassion, accountability, respect and excellence (iCARE).
  • Immediately report any students who are no longer participating in a rotation. If the student is no longer part of the school’s program, instructor will collect the St. Luke’s issued student ID badge and return to St. Luke's student services.
