3. Forms to have ready before accessing the Nursing application:
1) Hep B vaccination documentation-
In our Upper Division, students begin clinical rotations in the first semester. ALL vaccinations must be complete in order to begin clinicals. Because the Hepatitis B vaccination takes 6 months to complete, we are requiring that all applicants submit documentation of a positive titer OR a negative titer and the first two injections at the time of application. This process could take six weeks if you have a negative titer and require the vaccine. Do not assume that because you had the vaccine as a child that you will have a positive titer.
During the summer, see your healthcare provider to have this blood test drawn. They must provide you with a quantitative titer that shows a numerical value indicating your degree of immunity (see example of lab results). You will nee to hold on to all lab results so you can submit them electronically with your application in October.
2) Volunteer/Work/Shadowing- We will accept emails, letters, and other forms that indicate the number of hours completed, description of observation experience, and point of contact to verify hours.
