Clinical Requirements: Robert Morris University Clinical Requirements | Robert Morris University

For Students

Clinical Requirements

An initial health evaluation, clinical clearances and current CPR certification (American Heart Association “Healthcare Provider” Level) are required prior to the start of the first clinical course.

Annual health evaluation and clinical clearance updates are also required.

RMU Department of Nursing uses Castlebranch to facilitate the completion of required health evaluations, clearance information and other documents. All students must create an account with CB when prompted to do so. The costs associated with these clinical requirements are the responsibility of the student.

Failure to complete the requirements by the established due dates will result in the inability for the student to attend scheduled clinical activities and may result in a delay in completing the program of study or dismissal from the program.

Students are required to complete and submit all clinical clearance requirements to CB 30 days prior to the first day of the course. Failure to submit these requirements 30 days prior to the first day of the clinical course will result in removal from the course (and any corequisite courses) by the University Registrar.

*** This policy does not apply to Clinical Affiliation Agreements, only clinical clearances.


  • A charge or a conviction of a felonious act may prevent students from attending clinical experiences. Inability to fulfill clinical objectives could result in failure in the course and/ or dismissal from the program.
  •  Students are responsible for notifying the Director of the RN-BSN, RN-MSN and MSN Programs of any change to background clearances immediately.
