Unexcused Absences

  • An unexcused absence from clinical practicum, any course, or educational meeting endorsed by the DNAP program will generate a day removed from the student’s bank of scheduled days. Unexcused absences from those areas are considered insubordinate. In this event, the student faces the possibility of further corrective action.
  • Unexcused absence is defined as:
  • The course instructor or DNAP program Administration has not given absence permission to the student prior to the absence.


  • The student has not presented an acceptable excuse to the course instructor or DNAP program administration after the absence.
