Photo ID, access cards, and professional image

Instructors and students will be expected to wear their school identification, preferably ID with a photo.

Access cards

Because VCH does not provide personal photo ID cards to students, they also do not automatically receive access cards for locked units. 

If a student is completing their practicum in a restricted-access unit that requires an access card, the site manager needs to obtain generic swipe cards for students to use while on site. It is recommended for students or school instructors to ask if there are available generic cards on sites with locked units in advance of the placement start date.

If there are no generic swipe cards at the site, the site managers are to access this intranet link to request generic cards for students.
