Health care demands the highest level of integrity. And the UMKC School of Nursing and Health Studies believe that professional behavior should start the minute you begin the health studies and nursing programs. Students working in classrooms, clinical rotations and volunteer roles are expected to adhere to standards befitting a trusted health care provider.
The Standards of Professional and Ethical Behavior are distributed to students during orientation. The standards offer behavioral guidelines for aspiring nurses and health sciences students. It also offers detailed procedures for those who violate the Honor Code.
