K.  Bloodborne Pathogens

All students enrolling in experiential courses, both IPPE and APPE, must complete the required bloodborne pathogen training as per Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines and as specified by the OEE. This training is completed on-line through an approved site. Students are required to renew this training annually prior to beginning the experiential coursework. Students shall maintain a certificate of completion in their portfolio. The OEE will notify students of the deadlines for completion of the blood-borne pathogen training for each semester in a timely fashion.

Any student, who fails to meet these requirements as set by the OEE, will experience a consequence for failing to complete and/or provide documentation per the regulations and deadlines set by the OEE. (See specific consequences outlined in the students section.)
