To protect the health of Creighton University School of Pharmacy and Health Professions (SPAHP) students and the patients they serve, and in accordance with contractual arrangements with varied health-related institutions, students in programs which have an experiential education component must meet specified requirements including immunizations, health insurance coverage, and acceptable criminal background checks before being enrolled in any of the School’s practice-based academic programs.
Students in programs which have an experiential education component must remain compliant with the immunization, health insurance coverage, and acceptable criminal background check requirements, as well as achieving and maintaining cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) certification, and completing training in universal precautions and HIPAA requirements before they can participate in experiential education activities. Proof of compliance with all of the items listed above will be required by Experiential Education Directors, and may be required by clinical instructors/preceptors, before students can be placed or accepted at educational practice sites. Students who have failed to remain compliant with these requirements will not be allowed to participate in experiential education activities and may be subject to dismissal from the School. At a minimum, non-compliance with this policy may impact or delay the student’s date of graduation.
