Health and Clinical Requirements for Nursing Majors

    Health and immunizations are monitored to meet the basic requirements of clinical affiliations and to assist in the maintenance of physical and emotional health necessary to meet the demands of the curriculum. Any preexisting health problems must be brought to the attention of the Executive Director of Nursing. These problems remain the responsibility of the student and/or parents or guardians and may not interfere with the goals of the program.

    The Department of Nursing requests that ALL information be submitted to the nursing office by August 1st .  A grade penalty will be applied if all health and clinical requirements are not received by that date.  For every week that a student is non-compliant with healthcare requirements, 5 points will be taken off of the first nursing exam grade. If an individual is late the second week, an additional 5 points will be deducted, and so forth.

    Sophomores For #2-6, healthcare providers must use form 31-a.frm.  No other forms will be accepted.  This form can be found on the nursing web page under "Current Student Resources".
