To ensure that BSN, Traditional RN to BSN Completion and Online RN to BSN Completions students are in compliance with CPR, immunization, background check and drug screens each semester.
In order to register for nursing classes, authorization must be granted from the School of Nursing. Effective fall 2011 annual requirements must be up-to-date and current for the entire academic year in which the student is enrolling before the student can be authorized. Annual requirements include:
- TB skin test or screening
- Criminal background check
- Drug screen
- Proof of licensure in home sate (Online RN to B.S.N.) or Indiana license (Traditional RN to B.S.N.)
If documentation is current for the entirety of the upcoming semester the student will be authorized to register for nursing classes starting with the campus early (priority) registration.
If annual requirements are not current for the upcoming semester, the student will not be authorized to register for nursing classes until documentation has been received by the School of Nursing to show that the requirements have been met. Example: If the student’s CPR or TB skin test expires during the Spring semester for which the student is registering, they must be renewed prior to the Spring semester.
Authorization to register for classes will take place within two working days after results are received. There will be no exceptions to campus registration deadlines. This requirement does not affect general education courses. Students may pre-register for general education courses as usual. The student’s seat in nursing classes will be available until the registration deadline.
B.S.N. students have only two opportunities to decline admission in writing prior to losing their eligibility to apply.
