Summary of Requirements
All students are required to complete the university's General Education (GenEd) curriculum.
All students must take a minimum of two writing-intensive courses as part of the major. The writing-intensive courses required for this major are NURS 4198 and NURS 4296.
All College of Public Health undergraduates must successfully complete the College Core Course, HRPR 1001 Public Health: The Way We Live, Work and Play.
Clinical/Fieldwork Agency Compliance
Please note the nursing program requires students to complete clinical/field education experiences at facilities both on and off the University campus. These clinical placements require criminal background checks, including Pennsylvania state criminal background check, Pennsylvania state child abuse clearance, FBI fingerprinting clearance and drug screen. The results of these requirements may limit and potentially eliminate placement options for the student, thus resulting in her/his inability to meet admission/graduation requirements. Additionally, conviction of a misdemeanor, felony, or felonious or illegal act may prevent the individual from becoming credentialed and/or licensed to practice nursing. Please see www.ncsbn.org/contact-bon.htm for more information about licensure.
Students also need a physical examination, proof of required immunizations, annual influenza vaccination, Quantiferon testing, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) certification, and personal health insurance. Students who do not comply with the required health and immunization requirements will not be permitted to attend clinical and may be dismissed from the nursing program. Additionally, all nursing students are required to pay a standard fee, along with tuition, each semester in order to be covered under the Temple University Accident Plan. If you sustain an injury as a result of a required clinical activity, your expenses related to that injury are covered by this policy (see the policy in detail since there may be some limitations). To examine the details of this policy and the procedure, go to www.temple.edu/hr/students/accident.htm.
