Dear Faculty, Staff, and Students:
In congruence with our previous announcement, the following information remains true, our Annie Taylor Dee School of Nursing recognizes that we as healthcare providers will always run the risk of being exposed to infectious disease. Our tools in addressing these circumstances are following CDC Guidelines, protecting ourselves by wearing PPE, being vaccinated, and above all being tolerant of those who choose differently than ourselves.
With that being said, there is an important update regarding clinical facility guidelines on COVID-19 vaccination, which we will be supporting. All other information found in the previous document is still current and true.
Due to our partnership agreements, we will immediately begin gathering vaccination data with a deadline of December 5, 2021. Only approved medical and religious exemptions may be accepted. Paperwork for the vaccine proof and/or the approved exemption will be required to be uploaded into Castlebranch when notified. All facility guidelines regarding vaccines and the wearing of masks will be followed.
In accordance with the Attestation Form you signed:
"I understand that practical experiences may be suspended, shortened, or rescheduled at any time due to changes in govenmental, university, or facility directives or complications due to COVID-19, which may impact the timeline for my progression toward graduation or completion of other objectives, such as certifications."
This is the official WSU Dumke College of Health Professions (DCHP) Exemption process. All students must submit their exemption request information through the qualtrics form: https://weber.co1.
We take our faculty, staff, and students learning and safety very seriously. In addition, we respect and support our clinical affiliations and recognize our practical learning experiences are dependent on these partnerships.
Thank you for choosing Weber State University and our Annie Taylor Dee School of Nursing. We are so happy to have you as part of our legacy. We are grateful for your continued patience and cooperation during these challenging times.
