Upon admission into the College of Nursing you will receive a list of required certifications and medical documentation that must be completed in order to be eligible to attend classes. This includes two types of documentation: medical documentation and certifications and trainings. All medical documentation is submitted, tracked and verified through the Wilce Student Health Center. Deadlines for each requirement is specific to the student’s program, curriculum plan and mode of instruction (i.e. online or in-person). You will be considered non-compliant if one or more of the requirements are unfulfilled. If you are non-compliant, you will be prohibited from attending clinical and/or health assessment. Please select your program below for your specific requirements, submission instructions and deadlines.

Compliance overview:

  2. The Office of Student Affairs and Success will send email notifications to those considered non-compliant or at-risk of becoming non-compliant. The at-risk status indicates a requirement will be expiring in the near future. Upon receiving the compliance notification to your osu.edu email account, it is your responsibility to take immediate action.
  3. You must follow the submission instructions for each requirement. Compliance status will not be updated unless the correct documentation is submitted per instructions. Please allow time for processing as processing does not occur immediately upon submission. It can take up to 8-10 business days during peak season to process documentation. Your compliance status will be updated if you follow submission instructions and once documentation is fully processed. You can access the submission instructions one of two ways:
