Clinical Packet

Congratulations on passing your Pre-Clinical Post-Test!

You are ready to move onto the clinical component of the Nurse Refresher Program (NRP). 

If you have not identified a clinical site willing to host your rotation, now is the time to do so. Try reaching out to an employee in the “education” or “student” department at a local hospital. Non-hospital clinical sites must be pre-approved by our Clinical Coordinator.

Once you have identified a willing clinical site, notify NRP in order to execute a Clinical Site Agreement.

Pre-Clinical Documents

Before you can begin your clinical rotation, you need to complete a Background Check. You also need to obtain a Temporary Nursing License from your state Board of Nursing (some states do not require this).

You must also provide NRP with the following:

  • Current AHA BLS certification (other cards will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis; must have both didactic and skills validation)
  • Proof of current Health Insurance coverage
  • Vaccination/Titer Records:
    • MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella)
    • Varicella
    • Tdap
    • Hepatitis B
    • Negative TB screening (skin test or x-ray permitted; must have been within previous 12 months)
    • Flu (waiver allowed)
    • COVID-19 (waiver allowed)

Please gather these documents and submit them all at the same time through the button below. You must have a Google account to use the submission form.

Clinical Documents

During your clinical rotation, you must review and complete the following documents with your preceptor:

Be sure to seek plentiful comments from your preceptor, because if any of the clinical documents are considered incomplete by the NRP Clinical Coordinator, they will be returned with feedback and you will be asked to return to your preceptor for revision.

Email these documents to NRP at the conclusion of your clinical rotation.

If you are obtaining an Idaho license, your clinical nurse preceptor must also provide a letter which states you successfully completed the required clinical hours and an assessment of your competency level. This letter must be emailed directly to the Idaho Board of Nursing at ibn@dopl.idaho.gov and cc’d to nurserefresher@nurseleaders.org.

Contact nurserefresher@nurseleaders.org with any questions.
