NOTICE TO POTENTIAL STUDENTS - Each of our clinical facilities have requirements that must be met in order to be allowed to gain entry to the facility and to participate in clinical experiences.  Most of the requirements are standardized between healthcare organizations.  However, some have specific requirements related to patient population.  In order to meet program outcomes and complete your clinical experience you must comply with the clinical agency requirements.  If you choose to not comply with the agency's requirements, we cannot guarantee completion of the nursing program.
