During your CWRU Orientation you will attend two special NURS major sessions that will assist you to meet requirements for entering student clinical practice. During these sessions, you will complete, and be certified in, the American Heart Association's course, Basic Life Support CPR for the Healthcare Provider. You will also participate in a routine background check by fingerprint method.
Note: Over the summer weeks before orientation, it is essential that you finalize the verification of all of the required immunizations and tests required to protect your health and that of your future patients for whom you will provide care.
See the "Medical Information and Immunization Requirements" section of your New Student Checklist. Without clearance and a release from University Health Services indicating that all of your medical requirements are updated, you will be unable to start the major in the fall.
Please refer to the New Student Checklist (which has a special NURS section) and use throughout the summer as a vital tool to ensure you will be ready to start your clinicals this fall.
Only authorized users have access to the New Student Checklist. If you have any problems, please contact Kecia Deutsch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Important Note About Changing Technology Requirements for 2020-2021 School Year
You are required to bring a laptop to nursing courses for electronic testing. Faculty use ExamSoft, for testing as well as Honor Lock, an on-demand proctoring tool that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to ensure academic integrity whether testing is done in class or remotely. However, the software is not compatible with iPads or other tablets, such as Chromebooks. Please review the Computer Requirements and FAQ document.
If you have concerns about meeting this new requirement, please contact BSN Program Interim Director Beverly Capper.
