Technical standards define the attributes that are considered necessary for nursing to possess in order to complete their education and training, and subsequently enter clinical practice. These technical standards are prerequisites for entrance to, continuation in, and graduation from a student’s chosen program in the College of Health and Human Services at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
Students must possess aptitude, ability, and skills in four areas: Psychomotor (coordination/mobility); Senses (visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory); Communication (verbal, nonverbal, written); and Behavioral/Social Attributes.
The technical standards described by the student’s chosen program are critically important to the student and must be performed by the student. Contact specific programs for detailed technical standards. Documentation of any disability is accomplished through the University Office of Disability Services.
