Compliance Requirements Policy
The School of Nursing compliance policy requires all nursing students, excluding PhD students, to be compliant with health, caregiver, HIPAA and bloodborne pathogen requirements while they are enrolled in the nursing program. It is the student's responsibility to know which requirements need to be renewed and take the initiative to renew them on or prior to the expiration date during their tenure as a nursing student. Academic Programs sends reminders to students periodically throughout the semester notifying them of any requirements that need to be updated. Students should respond to these reminders in a timely manner. These reminders will come from either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org email accounts. Be sure to check your wisc.edu accounts regularly.
Nursing students who have withdrawn: If a student becomes out of compliance during a semester in which they have withdrawn, the student needs to be back in compliance no less than one week prior to the beginning of the following term.
The consequences, if a student does not remain in compliance with one or more of these requirements, are twofold:
- The student will not be allowed to participate in classroom/online courses or complete further clinical hours until the required documentation is submitted.
- An enrollment hold will be placed on the student’s university record and will not be removed until two weeks past the priority enrollment date for the following semester.
If a student comes out of compliance, an email is sent to the student; course professors are copied on the email so they are aware that the student cannot participate in class until he/she has submitted the required documentation. An email will be sent to both the student and course professors when the student is in good standing and able to participate in class and/or clinical again.
