We recognize our great responsibility and accountability to society, other health care professionals, and ourselves, as we enjoy the privilege of providing for the health care needs of our patients. Therefore, we do hereby pledge to live within this Professional Code of Conduct.

Behavioral Standards: Unacceptable Behaviors Certain behaviors are detrimental to the learning or care environment and are labeled unacceptable in the College of Nursing as well as in professional practice. The following are definitions of unacceptable behaviors as determined by The University of Kentucky College of Nursing: A. Plagiarism Taking credit for someone else s work or ideas, stealing others results or methods, copying the writing of others without acknowledgement, or otherwise taking credit falsely.

F. Assignments When any material is to be turned in for inspection, grading, or evaluation, it is the students responsibility to ascertain what cooperation between them, if any, is permitted by the instructor. It is a violation of this code for students to submit work that is not the result of their own labor and thought. G.

6 6 III. Procedures for Handling Suspected Violations of the Professional Code of Conduct Overview This section describes how alleged violations of the code are to be handled. A short section on suspected faculty violations shows that these are moved quickly into the University procedures without investigation or hearing by the Professional Code Committee (PCC). The intent of the section on faculty is to provide several ways of reporting suspected faculty violations. The remainder of this section deals with procedures for handling suspected student violations. The following procedures are described: o Reporting o Investigation of reports o Hearings for charges found to have probable cause o Sanctions that may be imposed if charge upheld o Procedure if the charge not upheld o Appeal procedures o Records kept/not kept o Confidentiality o Evaluation of Professional Conduct Committee o Composition and selection of PCC and HC (Hearing Committee) o Communication with accused. Notification of the accused is covered in several components of Section III. In every case the accused will be notified by certified mail, regular mail, and . The notification will state only that the accused can expect an important communication by mail and certified mail; no specific information will be given by . Failure to Report: Failure of any student, faculty, or administrator of the College of Nursing to report a suspected violation is considered a violation of this code. A. Faculty as Suspected Violator 1. Reporting Suspected Faculty Violations Students, administrators, faculty, or staff observing a suspected faculty violation of this code have the duty and responsibility to report that violation using one of the following mechanisms: a. Report to Faculty Co-Chair of the Professional Code Committee (PCC) within 7 business days after the suspected violation. The Faculty Co-Chair will then notify the accused and the appropriate Assistant Dean of the College of Nursing within 2 business days after learning of the violation; OR b. Report to the appropriate Assistant Dean within 7 business days of the suspected violation. NOTE: A suspected faculty violation will never be reported to the full PCC, nor investigated or heard by the PCC.
7 7 2. Determination of Charges for Suspected Faculty Violation a. The Assistant Dean notifies the Dean within 2 business days b. The Dean appoints a tenured faculty member as Faculty Investigator who conducts the investigation, including input from the accused, and determines if evidence indicates that a violation has occurred (within 10 business days). c. Faculty wishing to admit to charge(s) found in the investigation will notify (within 5 business days) the Faculty Investigator, who will refer the case to the Dean for determination of disciplinary sanctions. d. If an accused faculty member suspected of a violation finds the charge(s) unfair, the Faculty Investigator will refer the faculty member to the applicable University process for violations in the areas of drug abuse, alcohol abuse, sexual harassment, or illegal/unauthorized use of computing resources. In the case of other suspected violations processes will be used as outlined in the Behavioral Standards In Patient Care or the University of Kentucky Ethical Principles and Code of Conduct, whichever is most applicable for the suspected violation. B. Student as Suspected Violator 1. Reporting suspected student violations Upon observing a suspected student violation of this code, students, faculty, administrators, and staff have the duty and responsibility to report that violation to any faculty member or administrator or to one of the PCC Co- Chairs within seven business days. The faculty member or administrator receiving a report will forward a written description of the alleged incident and the witness(es) statement(s) to a PCC Co-Chair within two business days. 2. Determining severity of the alleged incident a. The Faculty Co-Chair will notify the student, the appropriate Assistant Dean, and complete the investigation of the accusation, including input from the accused within 10 business days. b. After a complete investigation, the PCC Co-Chairs will make one of the following determinations: i. The alleged incident is not a violation of the Profession Code of Conduct. 1. The student and all interested parties will be informed of the decision, all records related to the incident will be destroyed, and no further action taken. ii. The alleged incident is not a violation of the Profession Code of Conduct but does represent behavior that is not in accordance with College of Nursing policies or professional standards. 1. The student will be issued an informal admonition. An admonition is not considered a disciplinary sanction, but may be considered in any future hearings. 2. The findings will be reported in writing to the appropriate Assistant Dean and a copy of the informal admonition placed in the Professional Code File, a file separate from the student s record.
8 8 iii. 3. The student will sign the informal admonition recognizing that she/he has seen the findings and has received a copy of the informal admonition. 4. The student can request a PCC hearing of the incident. A written request for a hearing must be filed with the Faculty Co-Chair within 5 business days of the student s receipt of the informal admonition. The alleged incident is a violation of the Professional Code of Conduct. 1. The faculty Co-Chair submits a report of the incident to the appropriate Assistant Dean (for informational purposes) and initiates the hearing procedure. 2. Within 5 business days of the determination, the PCC Faculty Co- Chair will notify the student by certified letter, regular mail, and by . The certified letter will (i) inform the student of the accusation; (ii) provide the date, time, location of the hearing; (iii) include all written materials related to the accusation; and (iv) request a meeting with the student to describe the hearing procedure and to review the student s rights and responsibilities with respect to the hearing The letter sent by regular mail will inform the student that a certified letter containing important information has been sent and that it is the student s responsibility to assure receipt of the letter. The will inform the student that important information has been sent by mail. 3. The hearing date will be set at least 10 business days in advance of the scheduled receipt date of the certified letter. The student may request a continuance for just cause. 4. Prior to the hearing, the PCC Faculty Co-Chair requests records of any previous violations/sanctions (including formal admonitions: and minor offenses) from the Professional Code File at the College and from the Registrar. These records will be kept sealed unless and until the accused is found in violation. 3. Hearing a. The Co-Chairs convene a Hearing Committee and remind the Committee that student information and all hearing proceedings are confidential. b. If the accused fails or declines to appear at the hearing, the Hearing Committee will hear the case and make findings and recommendations without participation from the accused. Non-attendance shall not cause the Hearing Committee to presume that the charges will or will not be upheld. c. The student against whom the alleged incident is charged is initially presumed to be not in violation of the Professional Code of College of Nursing. Those present at the hearing include individuals directly involved in the alleged incident and witnesses requested by the PCC chairs or the accused student. The accused student may have a person
9 9 present to provide advice and/or support. The adviser may only counsel the student and may not actively participate in the hearing. If the alleged incident was reported to a faculty member or administrator, that person making the original report to the PCC will be present in the hearing, if possible. d. The hearing is tape recorded, except the closed session component. e. Hearing Procedure: i. The person bringing the allegation describes the incident without interruption. ii. Any additional witnesses are then asked to describe the incident without interruption. iii. After all testimony has been provided, the student is asked if he/she agrees with the accusations and is allowed to respond to the accusation without interruption. iv. Members of the Hearing Committee ask questions of each person as needed to obtain sufficient information to make a determination of whether a violation has occurred. v. At the conclusion of testimony, the accused and all witnesses leave the hearing room so the Hearing Committee can go into closed (untaped) session to discuss the evidence and render a decision. Witnesses are dismissed, but the accused is asked to wait nearby. vi. During the closed session the decision of whether or not the student is in violation is based on the greater weight of the evidence and is determined by a majority vote of the Hearing Committee. If a student is found in violation, the student s prior record of admonitions, minor offenses, or violations is opened and included in the determination of the appropriate sanction(s) (see Section 4). vii. Once the decision has been rendered, the accused is asked to return to the room, the tape recording is restarted, and the Student Co-Chair informs the student of the Hearing Committee s decision and any sanction imposed. The student is also informed of his/her right to appeal and that a formal letter outlining the findings will be sent to his/her home address by certified mail within 2 business days. viii. The hearing is then concluded and the recording stopped. ix. Within 2 business days after the hearing, the Faculty Co-Chair notifies the accused by certified mail. The Faculty Co-Chair will also notify the faculty involved, the appropriate Assistant Dean and the Dean of the College of Nursing. 4. Sanctions Educational sanctions can accompany any of the listed sanctions. Formal Reprimand
10 10 Disciplinary probation Disenrollment from the College of Nursing permanently or for a specified term Other sanctions, such as educational or experiential requirements that will promote students understanding of the issues involved. 5. Appeal An appeal to the Dean may be filed by the accused within 10 business days of the receipt of the Hearing Committee s decision by certified mail on the following grounds: Error of fact Lack of adherence to due process or Belief that sanction is too severe. The Dean shall not reverse the determination of the Hearing Committee as to whether or not a violation has occurred. The Dean may decide to impose a sanction which is less than, the same as, or greater than that imposed by the Hearing Committee. The Dean will inform the PCC Co-Chairs and notify the student by certified mail of the decision within 10 business days. The Faculty Co- Chair will notify the full PCC of the Dean s decision. 6. Records At the end of the hearing, all records pertaining to the incident are given to a College of Nursing staff person who will place them in the Professional Code File separate from the student s records. These records are confidential and retained for 5 years. If the student is not found to be in violation of the Professional Code, all records related to the hearing will be destroyed by the Faculty Co-Chair. 7. Confidentiality The proceedings are kept confidential and not shared with anyone outside of the committee except the student, the reporting person, the appropriate Assistant Dean, and when the student is found in violation, the Dean and any University officials designated by University rules. 8. Evaluation The PCC Co-Chairs will prepare an annual report of hearing actions that is submitted to the Dean. 9. Professional Code Committee A. The Professional Code Committee (PCC) will be chosen in September/ October of each academic year and will consist of the following members: Two faculty members, each with 5 years full-time experience as a faculty member (at least 3 years at UKCON), chosen by the Faculty Council to serve 2-year staggered terms, one of whom shall be designated to serve as Faculty Co-Chair and the other designated to serve as alternate Co-Chair.

The Faculty Co-Chair of the PCC will coordinate the appointment of student members and arrange an organizational meeting of members in September/October to review the Professional Code and its procedures and to select a student Co-Chair. C. When a hearing is needed, a Hearing Committee (HC) organized by the Faculty Co-Chair or designee (Ex-Officio) consisting of two graduate students, two undergraduate students, and chaired by the student Co-Chair will hear the case. Alternates will serve when a member in their category cannot attend. Any member who has a conflict of interest shall recuse themselves and their respective alternate will replace them. D.
