Every student enrolled in the UW School of Nursing program (BSN, ABSN, MN, DNP, PhD, GNM, Certificates) must meet School of Nursing compliance requirements prior to the start of the program and throughout enrollment. Several requirements have annual or biennial expiration dates, including immunizations, CPR card, background check, and RN licensure (if applicable). It is your responsibility to maintain, renew, and update each requirement by the expiration date and to keep copies of each in your personal records off-campus.
- Students enrolled in clinical courses: Clinical sites require the School of Nursing to send verification of your compliance status (including your immunizations history) quarterly by submitting the Clinical Passport. If any of your compliance items have lapsed or are outstanding, you will not be allowed on-site.
- Students entering clinical sites for observation purposes, data collection, research projects, etc. must meet the clinical agencies compliance requirements in addition to the School of Nursing requirements.
