Students in UMKC's School of Nursing and Health Studies (SoNHS) are expected to be familiar with the contents of the UMKC General Catalog and UMKC School of Nursing and Health Studies Policies & Procedures Manual and comply with the provisions pertaining to their level of study. The UMKC General Catalog outlines the minimum academic regulations and degree requirements. The UMKC School of Nursing and Health Studies may adopt additional and/or more stringent requirements for admission, retention and degrees that take priority over the Catalog’s minimum regulations to provide students with the best possible preparation for successful completion of licensure examinations. All policies are reviewed annually. Policy changes become effective the fall following the approved change. Students will be notified via UMKC e-mail if there are exceptions to the effective date. These policies and procedures can be found in the School of Nursing and Health Studies Policies and Procedures Manual located at http://sonhs.umkc.edu/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/policy-procedure.pdf.
Students must also be familiar with the Nursing Honor Code found at http://sonhs.umkc.edu/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/honor-code.pdf.
Academic and Professional Behavior
Students in the School of Nursing and Health Studies abide by the University of Missouri Student Conduct Code (listed in the appendices of this catalog) and by the School of Nursing and Health Studies Honor Code. The Standards of Professional and Ethical Behavior detailed in the honor code have been developed to guide students who are enrolled at all levels with the UMKC SoNHS, including undergraduate and graduate students, and are designed to assure accountability for the professional and ethical standards of the nursing profession.
