IMMUNIZATION POLICY

The Puerto Rico School of Nurse Anesthetists is aware that our students are exposed to many infections and diseases as part of the educational experience in hospitals.  Considering this situation the PRSNA has established the following immunization policy:

  1. All students must present a Health Certificate approved by the Department of Health as part of the admission process and once a year.

  2. All students must present evidence of Hepatitis B, Chickenpox, and Influenza vaccination.

  3. Any student that refuses vaccination, must present specific reasons, and if there is a medical reason, the student must present medical certificate.

  4. All information about the student vaccination will be confidential and part of the student record.

  5. Once a year students will receive reminders to present the evidence of vaccination.
