Nursing Student Health Requirements


To protect the health of all Clinton Community College members and the patients that you serve, CCC and our clinical partners require students to fulfill certain health requirements. Nursing students are expected to submit their health records to the CCC Health Office at least 2 weeks prior to the start of classes. Associated fees will be the responsibility of the student.

The vaccines listed are to be reported by your physician on the Immunization Record contained in the Health Report. A physical form is also included in this packet. The Essential Skills Form and Meningitis Form can be found in the MEMO for Nursing Students. You will receive all of these forms as part of your acceptance packet from the Admissions Department.
