It is a requirement that Clinical Nurse Leader and Nurse Educator students carry their own medical malpractice insurance while enrolled in practicum courses. At least two terms prior to the start of the clinical components, students will be required to demonstrate proof of having an active individual medical malpractice certificate. In addition all students must comply with the requirements of the healthcare organizations where their capstone clinical immersion experience will be completed.  These requirements may include (but are not limited to) criminal background checks and verification of licensure, immunization records, and health insurance. Students may incur additional costs to meet the healthcare organization requirements.
