Clinical Health Requirements and Background Checks

Clinical health requirements and background checks are mandatory per the clinical facilities for any student participating in clinical courses. The facilities will not allow anyone entry unless the College of Health and Society can provide documentation each semester that all of the requirements have been met. All health requirements are determined by each individual facility and are subject to change without prior notice. We attempt to notify students and meet these specific requirements as quick and smoothly as possible. However, the students are liable for maintaining current and accurate health records during the entire time participating in clinical courses.

We are implementing a new system for tracking health records that will be more secure and easier for you. Effective immediately you will be able to email, fax or mail your health records to Castle Branch (previously Certified Background). All nursing students must submit their health records to this web site by the health records deadline.

Please visit Castle Branch to place an order for your background check and medical document manager.

Her office hours are:
