Students entering nursing must submit evidence of good health. It is the responsibility of the student to maintain health and safety requirements. Students who are out of compliance with any health and safety requirements will be blocked from online campus program-specific clinical courses and will not be allowed to attend clinical until the requirements are met. Questions regarding health and safety may be directed to the Health and Safety Specialist at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Health and safety requirements are subject to immediate change in order to maintain compliance with state and federal requirements, Center for Disease Control requirements and standards of practice.
