    HOURS IN CLINICAL PRACTICE, APPRENTICESHIP OR INTERNSHIP

    Traditionally, most educators have gone to great lengths to ensure that learners invested sufficient hours as a basis for earning grades. Despite the importance of "time on task," what is more valuable is that a person comes away from a course with a level of skill and understanding that prepares them for life, in a holistic sense. The apprenticeship system in most guilds and trades required a person to be able to perform certain skilled actions or produce items of a certain quality before being promoted. This type of pedagogic approach can be seen in the writing of Johann Amos Comenius (1592-1670); in John Milton Gregory's Seven Laws of Teaching; or in reminiscences of training by Jean Louis Rudolph Agassiz, in Scudder's In the Laboratory with Agassiz. In other words, "hours spent does not an education make?" While learning does take time, a useful education comes from focusing on practical life-changing results which may or may not be reflected in program length alone.


    Program Hours

    Program hours here are to be estimated based on:

    1. The supporting documents, e.g. laboratory hours on formal transcripts, attestation of a clinical instructor, etc.;
    2. Estimated clinical hours based on a usual work week; i.e., 40 hours per 48 weeks, if engaged in full-time practice. The supporting document, in this case, is a notarized copy of previous business licenses or a signed letter from the institution of employment (e.g. Hospital, Clinic, Out-Patient Facility, Hospice, etc.).

    Note

     

    Certification under BNMDP/NMCC is not an academic degree. Potential registrants must provide supporting evidence of educational standing and may be required to pass certifying exams in order to be certified. There will be no exceptions.
