Proof of health insurance for all health sciences students is required prior to the first day of each semester, consistent with the requirements of our clinical education partners. With the increasing risks of providing patient care, it is necessary for you to be protected. This coverage is in addition to the accident insurance provided by the College. Students will be required to submit proof of insurance once they are officially accepted into the program. Students who qualified for an Exemption under the new Healthcare law will still be required to provide proof of insurance each semester. No one is exempt from the requirement.
We can not accept the following plans due to recent changes: Central Health (MAP and or CHAP) along with Seton Clinic cards (I Care and or Seton Care Plus) and all other Medical Assistance programs and or cards.
Proof of insurance will be verified each semester.
Students are required to keep the policy current and notify the program if changes occur. Failure to do so will result in removal from the clinical site and withdrawal from the program because students will not be able to meet their learning objectives: http://www.austincc.edu/health/health_insurance.php
New Texas Board Of Nursing Background Check Procedure:
In compliance with Texas Board of Nursing (TBON) requirements, the ACC Nursing department is implementing the TBON required background check in addition to the Pre-Check requirement.
All applicants to a nursing education program must submit a Texas Board of Nursing (BON) background check prior to enrolling in a program. This was previously completed in the last semester when applying for licensure.
All students will be notified by the department when it is time for them to start this process. Please do not do so until notified by the department.
All students needing to submit a Declaratory Order with the BON needs to begin the process NOW. Not sure if you need one? Complete the Licensure Elgibility BON Module to clarify if it is necessary.
*All students receiving the BON email, please be aware it is not an Acceptance Letter so please do not mistake it for that. It is a step in the process whether you are admitted this semester or a later semester.
If you completed the BON Fingerprinting you will not submit anything to the Nursing Department until directed to do so. You will receive a physical BLUE CARD in the mail from the BON once you are clear.
**If you need to complete the Declaratory Order process do not delay. All students must have clearance to begin the ADN program, no exceptions can be made. The Declaratory process can be a lengthy process and possibly delay your program start. This step in the process is only for students who answered YES to any items in the Licensure Eligibility BON Module "Affidavit of Eligibility".
