To protect the health of all TMCC community members and the patients you serve, TMCC and our clinical partners require students to fulfill certain health requirements. The Maxine S. Jacobs Nursing Program students are expected to submit their health requirement records to the Nursing Program as directed.
Immunizations are an important part of your nursing school attendance and they are required by the nursing program and clinical facilities you will be attending. Immunizations must be current at all times. A delinquent immunization may affect your clinical attendance. Personal record-keeping of your documents and dates will help you remember when an immunization needs to be updated before the expiration date.
If you would like additional information on any of the below-required immunizations, please reference the Centers for Disease Control website.
