The practical training instructor will be approved by UHCA upon application to the program. A written letter request must be submitted with the application. 

The practical training instructor-to-student ratio shall be: 1:2 if the instructor is working one-on-one with the student to administer the medications; or 1:6 if the instructor is supervising a student who is working one-on-one with the clinical facility's medication nurse. The on-site practical training experience instructor shall be on-site and available at all times if the student is not being directly supervised by a licensed nurse during the practical training experience. By each student conducting their clinical hours at their own facilities, they will have access to appropriate trainers and resources to provide the training program including a well-stocked clinical skills lab or the equivalent.

 *Clinical hours must be completed within 4 weeks after classes end. Once all clinical hours have been reported to UHCA, the student will receive a certificate of completion to be able to register for the DOPL exam.
