COVID-19 Vaccination Notice

As a student enrolled in a Nursing & Health Professions Program, you will complete program requirements in various community-based health care facilities that may expose you to environmental hazards and infectious diseases such as but not limited to Tuberculosis; Hepatitis B; Measles, Mumps & Rubella; and COVID-19. As such, clinical facilities maintain specific health requirements for students to participate in clinical rotations, fieldwork experiences, practicum, and preceptorships.

While State College of Florida highly recommends that all students fully vaccinate against COVID-19, many clinical sites are mandating that their workforce, including students, be fully vaccinated to enter the work site, including to participate in clinical rotations, fieldwork experiences, practicum, and preceptorships necessary to meet degree requirements.

Based upon this new information, Nursing & Health Professions students not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 may not meet the health requirements to enter clinical facilities utilized by the programs, and as such, may impact a student’s ability to complete program requirements, thus delaying progression in the program and/or result in a student being unable to complete the program.

SCF is highly recommending that every Nursing & Health Professions Student be vaccinated against COVID-19 to meet these clinical requirements similar to existing vaccination requirements for other communicable diseases. Inability to complete required clinical programming due to vaccination status may impact a student’s ability to complete program requirements, thus delaying progression in the program and/or result in a student being unable to complete the program.
