Clinical Health Requirements and Background Checks
Clinical health requirements and background checks are mandatory per the clinical facilities for any student participating in clinical courses. The facilities will not allow anyone entry unless the College of Nursing and Health Sciences can provide documentation each semester that all of the requirements have been met. All health requirements are determined by each individual facility and are subject to change without prior notice. We attempt to notify students and meet these specific requirements as quick and smoothly as possible. However, the students are liable for maintaining current and accurate health records during the entire time participating in clinical courses.
We are implementing a new system for tracking health records that will be more secure and easier for you. Effective immediately you will be able to email, fax or mail your health records to Certified Background. All nursing students must submit their health records to this web site by the health records deadline.
Please read the Certified Background Student Instructions and then visit www.CertifiedBackground.com
