July 31st is the deadline for submitting updated health and BLS information to the Nursing program each year.

Registration cards will be held for ALL students pending completion of their immunization records each year. Pick-up cards in person in OE-102.

Your PPD results (read date) and your BLS certification date is only valid for ONE year. (Yes, we know your BLS card may indicate it is valid for 2 years, BUT for the clinical locations, this must be renewed EVERY year.)

Renew your PPD (TB) SKIN-TEST and BLS so they will not expire before the end of the next Winter's semester ending date. To be safe, be sure to renew AFTER May 15th each year.

Where to get your TB test

Where to get your BLS CERTIFICATION

Helpful Hint: When you get your new year's calendar, turn to May and schedule an appointment for your TB test and BLS recertification. July 31st is the deadline, but please try to turn your information in earlier to avoid the last minute rush.

COPIES of supporting documentation:
Be sure to bring COPIES of your PPD SKIN-TEST results and BLS card. NO copies will be made in OE-102. Copy machines are available in the Student Center.

INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS NEW IN THE NURSING PROGRAM:
Before a student begins coursework in the Nursing Program, a Report of Medical History (supplied at Orientation or another may be picked up in the Nursing Office) must be completed and submitted on or before July 31st.

The student is responsible for completing the front of the form.

The back, "Health Examination", must be completed and signed by a Physician or Nurse Practitioner.

When turning in your health records, be sure you have the following seven (7) items:

1. The original, completed Report of Medical History, signed and dated (front and back). Before you leave your medical exam, verify the 1st five numbered sections on the back of the form have been completed. Please do not turn in the report with incomplete information.
2. PPD (TB) skin-test, intracutaneous (MANTOUX), NOT tine along with the reading. Show date of test and date of read results on the Report. (if you have had a BCG or if for someother reason you have a positive TB skin test, please get the TB Evaluation form by clicking here.)
