Statement Regarding Vaccinations:
Sampson Community College does not require specific vaccines in order to enroll or attend classes on campus. Nursing and health science programs require clinical hours to be completed at one or more at clinical sites under agreement with the College. Students admitted to these programs must comply with the requirements set by outside clinical agencies which may include a criminal background check, drug screen, physical, and/or specific vaccines. Decisions about an individual student’s presence in the clinical environment are made by the clinical agencies.
Clinical sites may be subject to the COVID-19 requirements of the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services or other requirements established by the clinical site. Students are guests in these clinical facilities and in order to maintain clinical privileges, must abide by the clinical site’s requirements for students and faculty.
Notice of changes of agency requirements may or may not provide students or faculty with advance notice of any changes. If vaccination becomes a requirement at one of SCC’s clinical agencies, lack thereof may affect students and their completion of a course and program.
If requirements are made by an SCC clinical agency and a student chooses not to comply, they may not be eligible to complete the clinical requirements of the program and will become unable to complete a course and the program.
