School of Nursing Limited Face-to-Face

The University of Baguio welcomes you, our Nursing Students, onboard!

As our partners in education, your safety is our priority. We will walk you through how you can navigate through the university safely.

Before leaving for school, make sure that you have checked yourself for the following:

Assess your health conditions before leaving home. If you do not experience symptomatic indicators, then you are ready.

Invest in a personal hygiene kit you can carry always. The basic elements include disposable gloves, extra disposable or washable masks, disposable wipes or facial tissue, alcohol-based hand sanitizers, or isopropyl alcohol. You may place these in a mesh or washable kit, or in a clean, reusable Ziploc.

Pack your meal or snacks to bring to the university. Stash pre-packed food, bottled drinks, or healthy snacks in your bag for convenience.

Wear a mask at all times. Clean your hands and strap on a mask. Place the straps behind your head or ears, then adjust the mask to cover your mouth, nose, and chin, leaving no gaps on the sides. Do not forget to wear your face shields, too.

Now that you have departed from your home, what should you do to enter the university?

Fall in line and maintain social distancing. Maintain a one-meter distance or more than three feet away from others at all times. Fall in line properly, and be alert of the following procedures when entering the university.

Use the sanitizing stations at every entry point of university buildings, and step on the sanitizing footbath mat.

Scan your temperature and download the StaySafe app on your Android or iPhone and scan the StaySafe.PH QR code. You may also opt to fill out the contact tracing form. We advise you to use your own pen when accomplishing this. Submit your form to the person in charge, and you may now enter the building.

Take these to heart when you use the elevator or when taking the stairs:

When using the elevator, queue properly in the designated area. Follow the taped marks to guide you on where to stand while waiting for your turn to enter the elevator. 

A maximum of four individuals must enter the elevator at all times. Take a spot in one of the four corners of the elevator. Face the wall while riding the elevator and limit conversations or interactions.

Should you decide to take the stairs, always follow the guiding arrows attached or painted on the floor. These are prominent in the university, and this help guide your easy mobility while navigating through the campus.

Always use your ID to show to the Instructor or lab custodian to claim your personal protective equipment or PPE. Please wait for your turn alertly and patiently.

Always pay attention to signages wherever you are. Signages are your guide and reminders throughout your stay on campus, and these must always be followed. Remember that abiding by these procedures not only enforce organized and effective mobility but helps maintain your safety and others’.

Observe the following when you are in your classrooms.

Seats are already pre-arranged with a 1.5-meter distance away from each other. Pay attention to advisories and stickers on the floor and walls, and use the hand sanitizer or alcohol dispenser near your classroom door.

Maintain social distancing when occupying seats in the classroom, and keep your masks on at all times. 

Your instructor will be teaching behind a clear partition.

Before entering the laboratory, wear your assigned PPE.

What are the guidelines for the laboratory? Here are what you need to remember.

A305 is the medical ward… 

A311 is the community health nursing room… 

And, A309 is the operating room complex… 

Room A304 is the emergency room. A304 is the rehabilitative nursing skills laboratory.

The delivery room complex is at A310.

Always navigate through your classes with one-way foot traffic.

A310 is the nursery room.

When going to the library, the following considerations must be remembered.

Again, use the hand sanitizer or alcohol dispenser by the entrance. Log in your name and information using the library pen, or your own.

The librarian is behind clear partitions to assist you, 

Take your turns patiently and at a distance when using library resources. You may use the library’s ___ for the reference material you need. Show this to the librarian for easier reference and access.

Maintain the 1.5-meter social distancing protocol as demonstrated by the arranged seating. Do not move these seats at any time.

When you take your leave, fix your seat, and return the resource materials borrowed to the librarian behind the partition, and sanitize your hands.

Use the exit points designated, and utilize the foot-controlled alcohol and hand sanitizer upon leaving.

In the dining area or canteen, the following protocols must always be observed.

Sit on either side of the clear partition fastened to the table. You may remove your masks when you dine, and these partitions provide extra precautions for when you are conversing with your company.

Observe the clean-as-you-go policy, and sanitize and clean the table you used with a wet wipe or clean tissue.

After your scheduled classes, always leave on time and place your PPE in a Ziploc or paper bag for sanitation, and keep these safely in your assigned locker.

Always pay attention to signages wherever you are and do not flock with your peers when walking out of the building. Abiding by these procedures does not only enforce smooth mobility but helps maintain your safety and others’.

You are our partner in ensuring a clean, healthy, and proactive university and community. Welcome, and we look forward to learning with you here at the University of Baguio!
