3.    Drug Screening: 

July 15, 2022--8:00 am to 4:00 pm ONLY in the atrium of the Health Sciences Building.

The Drug Screening is mandatory.  If you cannot do your drug screening on this date during the specified time, you MUST contact the HS Division at 405-733-7359 to arrange an alternate date.  Failure to show or reschedule will be considered a refusal to test and you will lose your spot in the program. 

You are required to pay $20 in cash only, at the time of your drug test. 

You must bring a photo I.D.

You must bring the registration form – it is attachment #2: Authorization For Services – Compliance Resource Group

Depending on the number of students present at the time of your arrival, you may have a short wait.  No one is allowed to come with you – including children, due to space and Covid restrictions.  The results will be sent to the Nursing Director.  After your test, you will not need to do anything further.

4.    Background check— August 5, 2022

Background checks must be completed on all students before enrolling in clinicals to meet the requirements of the facilities used.  We are using GroupOne Services.

The cost for this is approximately $60.00 and must be paid by credit card when the background check is ordered on the GroupOne website. You must order your background check no later than August 5 so a confirmation can be returned to the Nursing Director.

5.     Deadline Mandatory Clinical Requirements Immunizations/CPR—August 5, 2022

Your immunizations are also required to enter clinical facilities.  You must start on your immunizations immediately and upload your proof of those into a web-based system called My Clinical Exchange no later than Aug 8.  Do not upload immunizations information before August 1, 2022. This helps ensure that clinical rotations are organized, efficient, and easier to manage for students, schools, and clinical facilities. 


The cost for this web-based system is $39.50, and must be paid at the time you register.

Please see Attachment 4 for information on using MyClinicalExchange, a list of required immunizations, and locations where you may obtain the necessary immunizations or titers.

We will handle your enrollment in the Nursing program classes as soon as we can – once your documents are uploaded and verified in MyClinicalExchange. You will receive a copy of your schedule at your course orientation.  For financial aid questions, you may contact the advisors at

7.  Textbooks/Uniform Patches – There is a required textbook package with digital access.  The textbook package is the same for semester 1 students and Career Ladder (semester 3).  See attachment 5 for instructions.

Uniform patches are available in the bookstore – you should purchase one for each uniform top and jacket that you plan on wearing.  These are usually less than $5 each at the bookstore.  More details are in the uniform attachments #6 below.

8.    Uniform and Equipment Requirements:  You will be required to have a uniform with a patch and student ID badge for clinical rotations. Your uniform will include scrubs, scrub jacket (optional), and shoes. (Semester 1 students will not be required to wear their uniforms until the 3rd week of school.)    In addition to your Clinical Badge, you must also have a regular Rose State College Student Photo ID.  You must be in your uniform before you can have your Clinical Student ID Photo badge made.  This badge can be made after orientation and before your clinicals start.  Please get your regular Rose State College Student Photo ID card first.  Do not try and get your clinical badge made until after your orientation, because we must provide the names of all program students that are eligible to the Student Affairs Office where the badges are made.  We will not do that until orientation.   Please see attachment 6A & 6B.
