Students admitted to the graduate nurs- ing program are required to have a health examination prior to clinical experiences. Subsequent yearly health examinations or health requirements are contingent on those set by clinical facilities. Students are gener- ally accountable to the same health standard as the facility employees in order to assure safe practice within those facilities.
Each student in the master’s program must provide proof of the proper liability insurance coverage for an Advanced Prac- tice Nurse, if not covered by Franciscan University’s policy. The insurance must be approved by your advisor. The cost for liability insurance through Franciscan University is $25 for the ES student and $90 for the FNP student.
The University will automatically charge the fee for clinical practice and liability insurance to clinical students’ accounts. Stu- dents already possessing liability insurance must show proof of coverage and payment to avoid charges for insurance.
Graduate students at preceptor sites repre- sent the advanced professional role of the Registered Nurse and are representatives of Franciscan University of Steubenville. Therefore proper professional appearance is imperative.
Students are responsible for providing their own transportation to clinical sites.
