Health and Safety Requirements

Prepare to Meet your Health and Safety Requirements

Students must meet the Health and Safety compliance requirements of the RN-to-BSN program throughout their enrollment. This includes an annual background check, HIPPA and other required student trainings, fieldwork site agreements, and all required immunizations aimed to protect students, the University and our community partners.

As you did with the background check, you will use our online service, CastleBranch, to manage and uploading the required set of immunizations, HIPPA training, and professional requirements. Community partners may request a copy of your background check and other health and safety materials.

There is an administrative fee of $50.00 (separate from the fee you paid for the background check). This additional fee cannot be waived. For deadlines, see the Health and Safety requirements under Current Students.
