    Health Requirements 

    Students admitted to the graduate nursing 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 generally accountable to the same health standard as the facility employees in order to assure safe practice within those facilities. 

    Liability Insurance 

    Each student in the master’s program must provide proof of the proper liability insurance coverage for an Advanced Practice 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 MSN student as of Fall 2015. The University will automatically charge the fee for clinical practice and liability insurance to clinical students’ accounts. Students already possessing liability insurance must show proof of coverage and payment to avoid charges for insurance. 

    Dress Code at Preceptor Sites 

    Graduate students at preceptor sites represent the advanced professional role of the Registered Nurse and are representatives of Franciscan University of Steubenville. Therefore proper professional appearance is imperative. The graduate student must adhere to the required dress code in agreement with the assigned clinical placement. A student name tag, which states that the student is a Franciscan University of Steubenville graduate student, with his/her name and title in full view, must be worn. 

    Transportation Requirements 

    Students are responsible for providing their own transportation to clinical sites.
