Hospital Facility Links
Within this page you will find links to the information and documents that are required of each student before the start of the clinical rotation. It will be your responsibility to complete ALL of the required documentation, and to complete all of the steps required by the hospital in order to be cleared.
If you have been continuously enrolled in our nursing program, you will need to present the following documentation to the HR department personnel during an onboarding session of the facility where you have a clinical assignment for the current semester. (If you are an employee of the facility you are assigned to, check with that HR Dept. for any exceptions that may apply to you concerning the on-boarding process.)
Registration is through our office and must be completed on one of the dates posted in the on-boarding schedules noted below before the beginning of your rotation at the facility. Your on-boarding date may be assigned by the facility. For your appointment you will need:
- Proof of clearance from original onboarding facility
- Proof of clearance for drug screening (including alcohol) - NO urine dipstick drug tests accepted
- Background check results from onboarding facility
- Proof of current TB clearance (annual is required)
- Test results (titers…) for all labs drawn
- Proof of immunizations/vaccinations (you may use this form if needed)
- Current American Heart Association CPR card
- Picture ID
- Completed and signed documents associated with facility on the COD facility website
It is your responsibility to prove that you have been previously cleared by one of the three facilities. If you need copies of your results, you may contact your original onboarding facility. Please note that they will need time to process your request, and there may be a fee. You will be required to prove your clearance to each facility you enter in the future. We suggest that you keep the “proof” in an organized file easily presented when needed (your compliance folder). You will also need to provide your instructor with a copy of your hospital clearance and your CPR card.
Documents must be completed before your clearance appointment with your clinical facility. All documents associated with your clinical facility are required reading.
