Supervised field placement experience is an integral part of the total curriculum allowing students the opportunity to apply knowledge and training gained from the semester and constitutes a basic preparation for a wide range of professional practice for full-time registered students. The course instructor will assess students throughout the semester and place accordingly in a variety of approved settings to display leadership qualities and work independently using skills acquired from semester for four weeks (160 hours) following course training.  Students will be placed in instructor approved agencies such as:  long term care facilities, hospitals, municipal recreation departments, and community agencies.  Throughout the semester, students will review field placement requirements and documentation, types of placements, and professional conduct.  The instructor supervises and evaluates the student’s progress in conjunction with a field supervisor (who is normally an employee in the placement agency).
