Conditionally accepted applicants are required to submit a pre-clinical urine drug screen and a criminal background check via American Data Bank. The drug screen and background check are completed at the student's expense. Students are advised that the inability to gain clinical education experiences can result in the inability to meet program objectives and outcomes. These circumstances may prevent final acceptance into and/or progression through the program, and may ultimately result in dismissal from the program. The acceptance letter will contain further information and due dates. Students can view the HSW School Policy for more information.
Begin the immunization process
Hepatitis B Process: Receive the first Hepatitis B injection. One month later, receive the second Hepatitis B injection. Five months later, receive the third Hepatitis B injection.
Rubella/Rubeola/Mumps Process: Verify two doses of the MMR vaccine or have the titers drawn. If immunity isn't indicated by the titers, then students must either start the two-dose series or have a booster and another MMR titer drawn in six weeks.
Varicella Process: Verify two doses of the varicella vaccine or have the titer drawn to verify immunity. Having had the Chicken Pox disease, doesn't mean students have immunity.
PPD: All students are required to obtain a two-step TB (PPD) skin test and update it annually.
Other: A current tetanus booster (within 10 years), Basic Life Support for Health Care Providers and an annual flu shot
Note: If students have had two titers drawn for these immunizations and they are still not immune, then students are exempt from any further attempts to become immune. Students should keep all copies of their immunizations for their records. Any student found out of compliance with these responsibilities will be sent home from clinical and may be dismissed from the program.
