Nursing Student Clinical Folder

Note: Health requirements for Nursing students are subject to change as new recommendations or federal/state regulations emerge. Individual affiliate agencies may have additional requirements. Course leaders will keep students informed of any new requirements.

Each Nursing student is required to submit necessary information for the Nursing Student Clinical Folder, including these health requirements: CPR certification, medical insurance card, immunization record, medical history and annual physical exam, including PPD.  The Nursing Clinical Folder also includes documentation of criminal background check and professional liability insurance.

Nursing health requirements conform to College, Affiliate Agency, American Association of Colleges of Nursing, New Jersey Board of Nursing regulations, and current recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) for health care workers.

Refer to Academic Policies and Requirements for specific health requirement information and details regarding the Nursing Student Clinical Folder.

TCNJ is currently accepting applications for the RN-BSN program, but owing to exceptionally high enrollment and retention, the Department of Nursing has no capacity for external transfer students seeking admission to the undergraduate Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program for the 2023-2024 academic year. This notice will be updated if capacity allows for applications to be submitted through the Office of Admissions for the 2023-2024 academic year
