Health Records Requirements

The clinical sites you will attend as part of the program establish health record, immunization, and background check requirements, called your Clinical Onboarding Requirements. Records must always be current and on-track throughout the duration of the nursing program.

If you are accepted to the Nursing Program, these records will be due before classes begin. Begin gathering your Health Records now and start any missing requirements. The Nursing Program Admissions packet will be sent to those applicants who are selected by the lottery and will include complete instructions for submitting your records and due dates.
