In accordance with Massachusetts Board of Registration in Nursing regulations, candidates for admission to a nursing education program must provide satisfactory evidence of compliance with the immunization requirements specified by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, [available at: http://www.mass.gov/eohhs/docs/dph/cdc/immunization/guidelines-adult.pdf]. Clinical agencies may require specific immunizations and/or titers and/or tuberculosis screening in addition to the requirements of the MA DPH.
A Health Clearance and Immunization Forms are provided to individuals upon acceptance to the program and must be completed and returned prior to the scheduled start of the academic year as published in the relevant Academic Calendar. Failure to provide all required documentation may exclude the PN student from clinical practice.
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.
