 NURSING DEPARTMENT

CLINICAL COURSE REQUIREMENTS 

 

PRIOR TO EVERY SEMESTER 

 

Health Clearance: Prior to registration, students in clinical nursing courses and surgical technology are required to obtain health clearance from the Kingsborough Community College Office of Health Services (A-108). Students should obtain information regarding annual physical examination, immunizations, tuberculosis testing, and forms from this office.

Malpractice Insurance: Students in clinical nursing courses and surgical technology must obtain malpractice insurance that is valid for the entire semester and provide documentation of this to the Nursing Department (MAC 401) prior to registration.

CPR Certification: Students in clinical nursing courses must obtain CPR certification and provide documentation of this to the Nursing Department (MAC 401) prior to registration. American Heart Association two year certification that  includes adult, child, infant and AED is recommended.

Information on obtaining malpractice insurance and CPR certification is available in the Nursing Department Office, MAC 401.

The academic requirements in the Nursing Curriculum are demanding and students are cautioned to plan their work schedules or extra curricular activities with this in mind.

Fatigue can certainly impair a health care worker’s ability to provide safe, professional nursing care.
Thus KCC ‘s Nursing Department states : All students need to carefully assess his/her level of fatigue, school requirements in terms of lecture, on-campus labs and clinical experiences and own work schedules. This assessment should carefully consider the potential impact of excessive employment on his/her ability to provide safe, professional nursing care. Each student has an ethical responsibility to ensure that fatigue does not negatively impact student nurse responsibilities.

Students are required to purchase their own books. Clinical Nursing students incur the expense of purchasing a required uniform, school patch for the uniform, and equipment necessary for clinical practice in healthcare agencies.
