Bachelor of Science in Health Science Program

Health Requirements and Background Checks

Health requirements and background check are mandatory per the practicum sites for any students participating in the practicum courses. The practicum site will not allow entry unless the College of Nursing and Health Sciences can provide documentation each semester that all of the requirements have been met. All health requirements are determined by each individual site 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 practicum 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 Certified Background. Health Science students must submit their health records to this web site by the health records deadline

Fall term 2014 health records deadline: July 3rd, 2014
Spring term 2015 health records deadline: November 9th, 2014
