Clinical Requirements

Greetings Future Students

All students admitted to the College of Nursing are required to provide documentation verifying completion of specific requirements by the date identified in the Critical Requirements Packet. The requirements set forth are mandated for all health care providers and health profession students. Students enrolled in the RN to BSN Educational Mobility, Nursing Research (PhD), Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) programs will complete a background check only at this time. All other students must complete background check, drug screening and health clearance verifications.

Certified Background Student Immunization Tracker

Students will utilize CastleBranch Student Immunization Tracker to submit and track health requirements. The Immunization Tracker (Medical Document Manager) walks you through the process of fulfilling immunization and health care documentation requirements. Please see the student guide on blackboard for specific submission instructions. Pre-registration is not required. Upon placing your order, you will create your unique profile and generate your login credentials.

Compliance Summary

Clinical clearance will be granted to you when you have completed all requirements. The Compliance Summary is for you to show to preceptors/faculty members responsible for your clinical practicums to verify that you have met the requirements. If you are unable to produce a valid compliance summary, the preceptor/faculty member will exclude you from all patient contact. Your inability to participate in required clinical experiences may be cause for withdrawing you from the course or may jeopardize your successful completion of the course and prevent your progression in the curriculum.
