Because these classes are prescheduled, you must attend all full days, and we cannot reschedule any of the required dates if you cannot attend. Attendance is compensated, as it is required for compliance. The remainder of your training is done on your unit, during the hours of the position you accepted and is also compensated. In addition, a Nurse Technician is often floated to other departments of higher need based with similar training. If they are outside of a unit with their similar training (like a med-surg NT going to ICU or HDVCH) they would typically just be acting as a safety attendant.
