Students need to undergo a comprehensive health examination performed by a healthcare provider no longer than 6 months prior to the start of the first practicum course. The healthcare provider should document a summary of the health examination on the Student Physical Examination Summary form.
All students, prior to beginning residency courses (with the exception of the Health Policy Residency), must meet immunization requirements as outlined on the Residency Requirements and Submission Deadlines section of the handbook. The College of Nursing document entitled “Communicable Diseases and Disease Exposure Policy” must be carefully read and adhered to.
All above policies and forms are located in the “Residency Information and Forms” drop-down menu within the Practicum Forms and Information Section of the DNP tab in the myPNW portal.
