  • Entering Students Preplacement Form

    This medical form can be taken to your personal health care provider to complete or you can make an appointment to see a Nurse Practitioner in the St. Clair College Health Centre (519-972-2380) to complete the medical form. This medical clearance may take up to 2 months to complete so please make an appointment to start the process as soon as possible. When the medical form is completed you must make an appointment with the St. Clair College Health Centre (519-972-2380) to have the medical form reviewed and cleared to receive your "Passport to Health". Your faculty lab teacher will only accept your "Passport to Health" from the St. Clair College Health Centre as evidence that you have met the mandatory medical requirements.

MANDATORY NON-MEDICAL REQUIREMENTS - SECTION B - (All ORIGINAL documents must be provided for clearance)

  • CPR Level HCP Certificate Card with AED (defib) (Annual Recertification)

    Please note the CPR must be for Health Care Providers (HCP) and must include Automated External Defibrillator (AED) training or it will not meet the requirements for clinical. Recertification must be annually completed despite what the CPR card may have as an recertification date.

  • Standard First Aid
  • N95 Mask Fit Testing (completed every two years)
  • Vulnerable Sector Police Check (annual) AND Photo ID required with birthdate (e.g. Driver's License)

    The Vulnerable Sector Police Check must be done within 6 months of starting clinical placement. To avoid having to have the police check repeated for the winter semester, it is suggested that students apply for the clearance the first week in August but no later than that. The results can take up to 6 weeks to arrive so don't wait past August 4th 2017 to apply for it.
