HEALTH REQUIREMENTS FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF NURSING
Junior students must submit a completed physical examination report on the SUNY Health Report and Physician’s Certificate prior to July 20th for Fall admission and December 15 for RN Spring admission. The provider must verify that the student is physically and emotionally capable of participating in a full program of study in clinical nursing. This verification includes documentation of a negative PPD or negative chest x-ray, and compliance with State MMR regulations. There must also be documentation of the dates of administration of the 3 part vaccine against hepatitis B or a signed declination.
Senior students must submit a health form before August 15 prior to their senior year. This shows verification of immunization status (including varicella) and last physical exam.
Failure to submit this verification of physical and emotional health will prevent participating in the clinical experience.
