LPN to BN Pathway Memorandum of Understanding

Applicant Declaration

I understand my acceptance into the Rural LPN to BN Pathway is contingent on my understanding of and acceptance of the following information and its implications:

  1. This program is delivered by streaming video
  2. I may be required to:
    • Attend scheduled classes or labs any time between 8am and 6pm, Monday to Friday, throughout the length of the program.
    • Attend classes or labs on weekends or in Winnipeg if necessary or unavoidable.
    • Attend clinical practice periods during the day or evening any day of the week, including weekends. I understand that clinical practiceperiods usually coincide with the start time of employees in that clinical facility. For example, day shifts may start as early as 7:00 a.m.
    • Attend clinical practice rotations in my assigned rural program community, its surrounding communities, and other communities withinthat regional health authority.
    • Attend clinical practice in Winnipeg when required clinical experiences are not available in the rural community.
    • Go to the practice setting to which I have been assigned on Sundays for the purpose of collecting information related to clinical practicewhen such practice is scheduled for Monday mornings.
  3. This program is a collaborative initiative between RRC Polytech and the Southern Health Authorities.
  4. Due to the nature of this full-time education program, past student experience supports that students who continue to work in full-time orpart-time jobs while taking the program jeopardize their success in the program.
  5. Successful completion of the following courses is required to meet admission requirements:
    • Nutrition
    • Scholarly Writing
    • Pathophysiology 1
  6. This rural program is separate from the program at the Notre Dame Campus in Winnipeg. Once registered, a rural program student cannot request transfer into the program at the Notre Dame Campus in Winnipeg.
  7. If a rural program student is unsuccessful in a theory or clinical course, there is no opportunity for repeating that course at the rural site. If, according to RRC Polytech Nursing program policy, the rural student is entitled to repeat the course, such a repetition must take place at the Winnipeg site “space permitting” at the first available opportunity.
  8. While there may be occasional program interruptions for a variety of reasons due to the nature of rural delivery, RRC Polytech will make every effort to solve problems in a timely manner to minimize disruptions to rural students.
