MCC Notice of Non-Discrimination

Monroe Community College prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy, familial status, gender identity or expression, age, genetic information, national or ethnic origin, physical or mental disability, marital status, veteran status, domestic violence, victim status, criminal conviction, or any other characteristic or status protected by state or federal laws or College policy in admissions, employment, and treatment of students and employees, or in any aspect of the business of the College.

Academic Honesty

In the academic process, it is generally assumed that intellectual honesty and integrity are basic responsibilities of the student. However, faculty members should accept their correlative responsibility to regulate academic work and to conduct examination procedures in such a manner as not to invite violations of academic honesty. Such violations include but are not limited to cheating and plagiarism.

The use of instructor materials and resources constitutes academic dishonesty and may be grounds for disciplinary action. The Monroe Community College Catalog/Student Handbook provides the definition of Academic Honesty/Dishonesty and information specific to disciplinary action and procedure for appeal.

Audio/Video Recording Contract 

Student Declaration: Should I choose to audio record classes in my nursing course, I understand it is my responsibility to:

  • operate the recording device
  • turn off recording device while any pre-recorded videos are playing due to copyright regulations.
  • notify faculty in advance of initiating recording.
  • not share recordings online in any format.

These recordings are to be used solely as an MCC nursing student. Video recording is prohibited.

Confidentiality Agreement for Simulation

As a student in a human patient simulation experience in the Department of Nursing Learning Center, I understand the significance of confidentiality with respect to information concerning simulated patients and fellow students. I agree to report any violations of confidentiality that I become aware of to my instructor.

I agree to adhere to the following guidelines:

  • All patient information is confidential and any inappropriate viewing, discussion, or disclosure of this information is a violation of policy.
  • This information is privileged and confidential regardless of format: electronic, written, overheard or observed.
  • I may view, use, disclose, or copy information only as it relates to the performance of my educational duties.
  • The simulation lab is a learning environment. All scenarios, regardless of their outcome, should be treated in a professional manner. The faculty running the scenario should have everyone’s respect and attention. Situations simulated in the lab are to be used as a learning tool and not to be used for humiliation of fellow students.
  • The simulation manikins are to be used with respect and be treated as if they were live patients.
  • No Betadine or ink pens near the manikins.
