Welcome Master of Nursing Students Being Admitted for Fall 2020 – Winter 2021 Academic Sessions
As a Master of Nursing Student, you will be taking clinical practice courses as your “nursing clinical practice placement experiences." All of your clinical practice placement experiences will occur in an actual health & community care setting where patients / clients are receiving health & care services.
Ontario legislation specifies certain surveillance requirements must be met, for those individuals entering into healthcare practice settings. In order to comply with these requirements and promote the safety of all parties engaged in giving and receiving health care & community based services – all nursing students are required to demonstrate they meet essential surveillance requirements with documentation prior to their entry into the nursing clinical practice placement setting.
Your completion of the PRR form (with a Health Care Provider / Physician) is compulsory for all nursing students enrolled in a practice course.
Your completion and demonstrated status of “clearance” of all elements on the PRR form supports the protocol of an annual review and submission of the PRR form prior to a student being permitted to enter an assigned clinical / practice placement setting.
You are encouraged to review the PRR form and complete its elements as indicated in the instructions. The form may be downloaded and printed for ease of completion with your Health Care Provider/Physician.
Note: You will need to present documentation (including actual confirmation dates of results, a copy of required laboratory test results and a corresponding signature of a health care provider / physician) as indicated for all required elements as identified on the PRR form.
