What are the vaccine and health requirements for the nursing program?

The vaccine and health related requirements for our program are based upon our clinical agency’s requirements. A list of the vaccines and other requirements is attached. Currently, Franciscan Alliance does not require Covid vaccinations or exemptions, but the flu shot is required.  Some of our clinical agencies require Covid vaccination or an approved religious or medical exemption. Seeking an exemption would be with the individual clinical agency not the School of Nursing. If the clinical agency declines the request, progression in the program is limited. Fortunately, we have been able to maneuver clinical groups to avoid this situation, but it is not guaranteed. Our Student Health Officer is happy to talk with any student about the health requirements in more detail.  The Student Health Officer contact information is on the Student Health Checklist at the link below.
