… I was the earliest bird again last Monday and Tuesday. Although I remind all students, from level2 to level 4, to come on time so we can join the endorsement, still they have not yet imbibed the virtue and value of punctuality. I mentioned this to our dean of the college of nursing to inform the bus driver to wait for the students until 6:40AM only and not wait for them, like a school bus waiting for the pupils. Some students request the driver to wait for them until 7AM. That should not be the case. The bus should leave the school premises at 6:40 and reach the hospital at 6:45AM. Anybody who arrives in the hospital from 6:46 to 6:59AM is already considered LATE. From 7to 7:15AM, the student is considered ABSENT. Make-up duties are given when a student incurs 3 counts of tardiness (3 LATE = 1 TARDY) and he has to pay P320 per make-up duty. Still, some come in late. I suggested to the dean to increase the penalty to P1000 per duty day; so, 3 duty days will be P3000. As usual, some of the students come in late (past 6:45AM).

they are student nurses. yes, for me, they receive a 70% grade in their personal and professional development, a level of competency for the students where we, their CI's, evaluate on them. they always reason out that the bus leaves the school late, but then, some of them ask the driver to wait for them, which should not be the case.
my suggestion to them is: they should leave their family problems in their homes, and face the problems in the hospital ward, then when they leave the hospital, they should leave the hospital problems at the lobby, and face their house problems.
