Acceptance to the Program is contingent upon submission of complete and verifiable documentation demonstrating compliance with the immunization requirements.
In accordance with the regulatory requirements of the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Nursing, the candidate for admission (the applicant) must provide satisfactory evidence of compliance with the immunization requirements specified by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (ref: 244 CMR 6.04(3)(a)1). These requirements are available at: https://www.mass.gov/files/documents/2018/07/02/guidelines-adult.pdf .
Certain clinical agencies have immunization requirements that exceed those of the MA Department of Public Health and as a result the Program cannot make any exceptions. Failure to provide all required documentation may exclude the PN student from clinical practice and participation in the Program.
All PN students are required to have health insurance while enrolled in the Program. Students are responsible for any costs associated with required health clearance and immunizations.
