COVID-19 information for nursing students



Important to Know

  • Those that may have been exposed to by someone with a confirmed COVID-19 positive test may be notified by health care or public health officials through contact tracing—an interview with a public health official to learn of others who may have been exposed. Names of people who test positive or who may have been exposed will not be released, per HIPAA and FERPA rules.
  • The program director for your academic program is available to coordinate communication between your clinical setting and the contact tracing officials. 
  • Some health care organizations may have policies that students and clinical instructors must follow if they experience symptoms, test positive for COVID-19, or experience a COVID-19 exposure (per definition) requiring quarantine or isolation. The School of Nursing Office of Academic Programs keeps the up to date information about health care organizations’ policies.
