Practice Requirement Record (PRR) Policy

All nursing students enrolled in practice courses must have their PRR cleared and stamped by the Central Placement Office (CPO) prior to the date of their first clinical/practice experience. 

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. We will not accept a summary of immunities in place of recorded information on the PRR document itself. The documents must be completed and submitted to the Central Placement Office by the dates specified on the form. Please keep in mind that a summary of your immunities is not enough, there must be documented lab work (doses/vaccinations/etc.) shown within the last 10 years.

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



Mask Fit Card

Students are responsible for arranging their own mask fit test. If your card has expired or is nearing its expiry date, please make sure to renew it as soon as possible: SMH Questionnaire and Instructions [PDF]
