PCHCS Student Handbook 2024-2025

Health Professions Division 2024–2025 92 papers may be posted anywhere, including doors, windows, and elevators, except on bulletin boards provided for that purpose. Please refer to the Distributing or Posting Printed Material section of the NSU portion of the student handbook. Parking Lot/Garage You are encouraged to use the parking areas designated for our students. You must obtain a parking permit from the One-Stop Shop in the HPD, the Horvitz Administration Building, or the Office of Student Affairs (at regional campuses). Please keep in mind that the parking spaces adjacent to or in front of our building(s) are for administrators, visitors, and patients only. Parking in spaces other than those appropriated may result in a ticket violation or towing of the vehicle. In addition, all vehicles parked on NSU campuses must abide by the “head-in only” rule to ensure that the license plate is facing the road and can be read by the License Place Recognition (LPR) cameras. Vehicles displaying an official state-issued front license plate may reverse into parking spaces. Reversing into a parking space without the front-plate option will result in the issuance of a “no back-in violation” citation. Remember to lock your car very day and park within the specified areas. Do not leave valuables in your vehicle. Courtesy and common sense in parking will avoid accidents, personal injuries, damage to your vehicle and to the vehicles of other students and employees. If you should damage another car while parking or leaving, immediately report the incident, along with the license numbers of both vehicles and any other pertinent information you may have, to the NSU Public Safety Department. The HPD and NSU do not assume any liability for any loss or damages you may sustain while parked in the parking garage. Use of NSU parking facilities are always at your own risk. Photographs and Recordings Students are prohibited from recording audio or video, or taking photographs in classrooms in all modalities (including online classes), without prior written permission from the instructor or pursuant to an approved disability accommodation. Students are further prohibited from reproducing, sharing, or disseminating class content recordings, or any portion thereof, with individuals who are not registered for the class. Absolutely no photographs or video may be taken in the anatomy laboratories. Postexposure Policies and Procedures An exposure incident is considered an urgent medical event that requires immediate attention for proper medical management. An exposure, which might place a student at risk for hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, or HIV infection is defined as a specific eye, mouth, or other mucous membrane, non-intact skin, or parenteral contact with blood, body fluid, or other potentially infectious materials. If a student has experienced such an exposure, the student must not delay in seeking medical care. The exposed student is to report the incident and the outcome of that initial evaluation as soon as possible to the environmental health and safety (EHS) liaison or the Office of Environmental Health and Safety via email at EHS@nova.edu. It is the responsibility of the exposed person to complete the appropriate online Postexposure Incident Form, located on the Office of Environmental Health and Safety website at nova.edu/ehs/index.html, as soon as possible and no later than 24 hours after the exposure incident.
