Clinical Clearance Requirements

In preparation for their clinical experience, students enrolled in the Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) specialization are strongly encouraged to review the Clinical Clearance Requirements forms, which are available from the Graduate Nursing Department. Clinical affiliates are becoming more stringent regarding health clearance documentation, and the absence of required documentation could delay or prohibit clinical placement.

FNP students are responsible for providing clinical clearance forms to the Chair of the Graduate Nursing Department by the determined due date for the applicable term. Therefore, students must maintain a copy of their own documentation of health requirements, mandatory certifications, and malpractice insurance. The Graduate Nursing Department reserves the right to make administrative changes to clinical placements as necessary.
