Clinical Clearance, CPR Certification, and Health Forms 



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 Certified Background (CB) 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.

NOTE:
  • 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.                                                                                                                                                                            Revised 4/14
