Mature behavior of Cass Career Center students is essential to the safety and success within each class.  Proper behavior and general work habits are basic requirements for successful employment, and they are stressed as part of the educational program and are as important as the skilled areas of the course.  If students fail to conduct themselves properly and do not abide by the Cass Career Center standards, disciplinary action will become necessary.  Practical Nursing students will follow the discipline policies in the Cass Career Center handbook.
