CHCS Student Handbook 2018-2019

Health Professions Division 2018–2019 81 insurance by the stated deadline will not be eligible to have charges removed and will continue to be enrolled in the insurance plan endorsed by NSU. Waivers must be completed at the start of each academic year. In view of health care reform and the Affordable Care Act, as well as all forms of health care insurance, we wish to advise those students who have health care coverage from commercial carriers—or the marketplace health care exchanges from other states than Florida—to check with their carriers in order to be sure they have comprehensive health care coverage in the region of Florida where they will be attending classes or practicum rotations. Cell Phones, Computers, Tablets, and Electronic Devices The use of all electronic devices for nonclassroom related (i.e., personal) business during class time is prohibited. Visitors Unescorted visitors in our facilities are not allowed. Visitors are not permitted in classrooms or laboratories on HPD property without prior permission from the college or department. No visitors are permitted in a restricted area at any time. If you are expecting visitors, you must request permission from the college or department coordinator and obtain permission from the instructor(s) giving the lecture that the visitor will be attending. No permission will be granted the day of visitation. Ask your visitors to sign in with the college or department receptionist and/or department coordinator when they arrive. Student escorts are permissible after sign-in. Visits to Other Institutions Students in the Health Professions Division may not visit, in an official or presumably official capacity as a professional or graduate school student, any health-related institution (hospital, pharmacy, practitioner’s office, clinic, industry, government agency, etc.) or any health school without express permission of the dean or authorized representative. Students may not use their enrollment in an HPD college as a professional or graduate school student to gain expanded access to any health-related institution beyond what is granted to the general public. Visits to relatives or friends who are hospitalized are permitted, provided they are within visiting hours and all hospital rules are observed.
