Substance Abuse Policy
The Federally Mandated Policy about alcohol and other drugs is distributed biannually to each staff member and student.
AMG School of Licensed Practical Nursing is committed to provide students, faculty, staff and visitors with a safe and healthful campus and workplace. The school recognizes the health risks associated with controlled substance use and alcohol misuse and is committed to supporting students and employees who seek treatment for these conditions. The School recognizes that controlled substance use and alcohol misuse diminish workplace and campus safety and undermine the school’s ability to fulfill its mission. Therefore, an Alcohol-and Drug-Free Campus/workplace Policy has been established. Compliance with this policy is considered a condition of employment and attendance at AMG School of Licensed Practical Nursing.
Substance abuse and/or addictive illness, can lead to serious physical, psychological, and social problems for the individual. Affected students may have impaired judgment and skills which can pose a serious threat to the lives of patients in their care. Substance abuse not only compromises patient care but also compromises the educational process. AMG School of Licensed Practical Nursing is committed to the identification of abuse, intervention, and referral for treatment of any students, faculty or staff involved. As per the School’s policy, the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession or use of a controlled substance on the School’s campus or at any site or activity operated by AMG School of Licensed Practical Nursing is prohibited. A violation of hospital and nursing home policy will likewise be considered a violation of school’s policy. All employees and students are notified of this policy by hard copy.
