Non-Academic Requirements

Nurses deal with patients/clients who have low immune system functioning or may have infectious diseases. It is imperative that nurses protect themselves and their patients from harm. As such, there are a number of non-academic requirements (NARS) provided below that will need to be completed and updated on an ongoing basis while enrolled in the program.  Appropriate documentation proving completion and/or renewal of those requirements must be submitted by the specified deadline for each term the student is in clinical.  This documentation will include items such as health documentation, immunization information and required certifications.

Failure to complete, renew and/or supply the appropriate documentation for any non-academic requirement by the specified deadline will result in denial of entry to clinical placements and will result in deregistration from the clinical placement and associated theory courses.
