1770.000 Permanent Status (FNA)


Nurses earn “permanent status” in a class after successfully completing the probationary period. Permanent status provides the employee with the right to appeal any severe disciplinary action while serving in the class. The exclusive procedure for appeals of severe disciplinary action shall be as set forth in the Disciplinary policy.

The standard probationary period for all Nurses shall be six (6) months from the date of hire. The standard probationary period shall be six (6) months from the date of promotion for newly promoted personnel. During the probationary period, an employee can be terminated with or without cause and with or without notice and does not have the right to appeal the termination.

Prior to the expiration of the probationary period, the Director of Student Health Services will make a decision regarding retention of the employee in a permanent status position. The failure of an employee to pass or complete probation shall not be appealable to any authority; however, an employee who fails to pass a promotional probation period will be returned to his or her prior position.
