All nursing students of Butler Community College must satisfy clinical requirements before the first day of clinical. It is recommended that students submit the Immunization Record and the Health Record as soon as possible after admission. This provides time for the records to be evaluated for completeness.
Contracts between Butler and clinical agencies and recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the Hospital Infection Control Practices Advisory Committee (HICPAC) guide these requirements. Students who do not meet clinical requirements will not be allowed to participate in clinical activities.
