Qualifying Employment and Verification Letter Template

See sample letter template below. Either pick up or have the letter(s) sent to your home address.  Read the letter before submitting to the School of Nursing.  Make sure that letters: (1) Are on original letterhead stationary; (2) include a description of your assigned duties and how you interacted with patients; (3) state whether hours are part time (must state number of hours per week) or full time; (4) indicate the length of time you were employed; and (5) the letter must be signed, and include the job title and telephone contact number for the person signing the letter.  If letters do not contain all of this information, on letterhead stationary, such letters will not be considered.

Template for Verification of Employment

Clinical Lab hours as part of healthcare occupation education

We will determine clinical lab hours from catalog course descriptions and college transcripts. If you can easily provide a copy of clinical lab hours completed, please do so; otherwise, we will research this ourselves. If you completed clinical training through a certificate program that will not show up on a college transcript, please submit a photocopy of your certificate. The copy should include name of the institution, program completed, date of program completion, and official signature.

We would like to clarify what type of employment is acceptable towards earning 'points' for the Employment Supplemental Admission Criteria area. Examples of work experience we accept are listed in our Supplemental Admission Criteria, or Point System.

Employment for an individual or at a private residence

We will only accept such work experience if you are employed by an health care agency or are being directly trained and supervised by a licensed MD or RN. We do not accept verification letters from an individual, unless you have been trained and are being supervised by an RN or MD, and the letter is written and signed by that professional.

Examples of work experience that we will not accept are:

  • Working with the disabled population, not needing medical care
  • life guarding, unless you are an EMT
  • an Activities Assistant at a Nursing Home or Rehab facility
  • an Administrative Assistant or Front Office Receptionist at an MD office
