Practice Requirement Record (PRR) Policy

When a student's PRR is incomplete, the PRR Policy comes into effect.

PRR Policy [PDF].

Your Practice Requirement Record demonstrates that you meet specific health and safety needs of placement partners. All portions of this document must be completed and signed by your HCP in the appropriate sections. The documents must be completed and submitted to the Central Placement Office by the dates specified on the form. 

Please access the PRR information appropriate to your program via the top navigation menu entitled "Student Placement Forms".
