Clinical hours are likely to break out of normal course hours due to agency operating hours, but a clinical schedule will be provided in advance. Total clinical hours are dependent on students completing at least 100 blood draws—fewer will require additional clinical time. Some clinical sites may require a drug screen.

Note - Background Check: Required by clinical agencies. The cost of the background check is included in the course fees. Passing or failing the background check is dependent on the type of crime(s) and/or when the offense occurred. Information of this nature is included on the Idaho Criminal History Unit website at https://chu.dhw.idaho.gov/. If a crime is on the list as a disqualifying offense, the student cannot enter clinicals; therefore cannot pass the course and is ineligible for refund or transfer of fees

HEALTH INSURANCE: In accordance with the affiliation agreement between ISU and clinical agencies, all students are required to show proof of health insurance before entering the clinical setting.
