Required Immunizations and Tests for UVU Nursing Students
Student nurses are at risk for exposure to, and possible transmission of, diseases because of their contact with patients or with infective material of patients. Immunization and TB testing compliance will be required of all students entering the Department of Nursing. Immunization requirements are subject to change based on agency requirements for participation in clinical sites.
Students will be required to take official proof of immunizations/tests to the Utah County Health Department in Provo. The Health Department will record the information and a copy of the printout students receive should be submitted to the Department of Nursing. This information will always be on record at the Health Department should students need an additional copy of immunizations/tests for any reason.
If unable to find childhood immunization records students may get a blood test (titer). A copy of the official blood test results should be submitted to the Department of Nursing.
The nursing department suggest starting this process early as some time in between may be required to get immunizations/tests if needed.
