Submission of Student Documentation


It is the responsibility of each student to monitor and update all health requirements, drug screen, CPR certification, background check information and proof of major medical insurance by the designated deadline prior to the beginning of any clinical rotation.  Failure to submit and/or provide documented evidence of the requirements including facility specific required documents prior to the designated deadline  SHALL result in the student receiving a 0.5 Critical Incident for each lab or clinical course. If appropriate documentation is not submitted prior to clinical, the student will not be allowed to attend clinical rotations. In addition, the student SHALL  receive a 0.5 Critical Incident for each clinical day missed until all documented information is submitted. Please note that more than 2 Critical Incident  points SHALL result in an “F” in the given clinical rotation which subsequently results in an “F” in the course.

 

Students are required to show coverage for the entire semester of enrollment at the beginning of each term for the following:  immunization, CPR certification, TB skin test or chest x-ray, liability insurance, major medical insurance, and criminal background check information.  Students must submit a photocopy of documentation.  Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses must submit a copy of their current nursing license.    Students are encouraged to keep originals or copies of health documentation for their own files.  The School of Nursing must have a signed release from the student to forward documents to an employer or prospective employer.
