The nursing faculty believes that nurses must maintain a high level of integrity. Integrity is demonstrated by honesty, fairness, respect, and trust. Therefore, deception for individual gain is an offense against the profession of nursing. Deception includes but is not limited to cheating, plagiarism, and misrepresentation.
Cheating is defined as wrongful giving, taking, altering or fabrication of any course work (examinations, written reports, care plans, etc.) for the purpose of gain for self or others.
Plagiarism is defined as the act of copying, stealing or using another’s ideas, words, or specific substances as one’s own without giving credit to the source. For example: submitting written work which is not the work of the student; failure to identify in part or in whole the original author; failure to use quotations for any idea which has not been assimilated in the writer’s own language; or paraphrasing (rewording) a passage so it is not grammatically changed.
Misrepresentation is defined as work submitted improperly or falsely to meet course requirements. For example: falsifying information; altering work for regarding; another person replacing student for an examination or laboratory; or presenting the same paper to different courses without prior approval of both faculty members.
Should a question arise regarding academic honesty in course work, it is the student’s responsibility to consult the instructor for clarification. Faculty will exercise one of the following sanctions for academic dishonesty:
1. A grade zero (0) on the individual assignment.
2. A grade “E” for the course in which the offense occurred.
3. Permanent dismissal from the Department of Nursing.
