Welcome new nursing students!
Per the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) and the San Diego/Inland Empire Nursing Service Education Consortia, all nursing students must be in compliance with the requirements mandated by these organizations. It is CSUSM School of Nursing's responsibility to ensure all students in our nursing programs are in compliance at all times. Every semester we are audited by various clinical sites and must produce current student health compliance documents.
Most of the requirements, once met, will not expire for the duration of your nursing program, with the exception of TB, annual influenza vaccination and CPR.

Students must upload a current health insurance identification card to his/her Complio account annually. Students will not be allowed to start any nursing courses if insurance proof cannot be provided by the deadline given at the new student orientation.
*ABSN students: If you start nursing courses in the spring or summer, or if you're taking classes in Temecula, you will need to call CSU Healthlink and explain that you are a CSUSM student. They made need to make an exception as to the start date of your policy.
Students must have a stethoscope prior to starting nursing courses.
Any type or brand of stethoscope is allowed. The School of Nursing encourages new students who need to purchase a stethoscope to consider buying one through the CSUSM Student Nurses Association (SNA). More information will be provided at the new student orientation.
This is a required purchase prior to the start of nursing courses. The ATI package contains textbooks for all of the subjects covered on the NCLEX as well as an online access code for taking exams and practice tests during the program. ATI is incorprated throughout the nursing program to prepare students for taking the NCLEX after graduation.
An ordering flyer will be distributed at the new student orientation.
