Air/Ground Transportation of Patients

Description: The College of Nursing does not approve of students participating in any clinical experience involving air/ground transportation of patients.

It is the College of Nursing’s policy that students are not allowed to participate in air/ground transportation of patients during any clinical assignments. The reasons for this decision are students’ safety, university’s liability and the fact that there are no contractual agreements between the CON and any ground/air transport agencies. Each course syllabus, where clinical assignments are required, will include this policy statement. Students failing to follow the stated policy will be subject to disciplinary action.
