Safety Measures

In the School of Nursing, the safety and health of Oakland University students, employees and our healthcare partners is our highest priority. In order to minimize health and safety risks when students are present on campus or at clinical sites, all students must adhere to the safety measures implemented to prevent the spread of the COVID-19. All measures are based on CDC recommendations. Students are responsible for acknowledging and implementing the following safety measures:

On Oakland University Main Campus or Satellite Campuses:

  • Students must fill out and submit a health screening prior to coming to campus each day.
  • Should a student test positive for COVID-19 or have symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle aches, new loss of taste or smell, or temperature above 100.4° F) they should stay home and notify their instructor.
  • Should a student be exposed to someone who is positive for COVID-19 without wearing proper PPE (N95 respirator, eye protection, gloves, gown), they should stay at home and notify their instructor.
  • Presence on campus should be limited to the time the student is scheduled for class or lab only.
  • Students must wear a face mask when entering any building on campus and the entire time they are anywhere in any building including restrooms, elevators, and stairwells. If the student is unable to wear a face mask due to health conditions, they must contact Disability Support Services.
  • Students must maintain 6 feet social distance when entering and exiting any building and the entire time they are in any building including classrooms, offices, labs, and student lounge areas.
  • Students need to follow floor markings for safe distancing and directions for movement in hallways, offices, and classrooms.
  • Students will wear the designated PPE required in the lab setting based on lab activities (face masks, gloves, etc.).
  • Students should wash their hands regularly: before and after using the restroom; before and after eating; after coughing; sneezing; blowing their nose; and at every glove/PPE change.
  • Any equipment used by more than one individual must be sanitized between users.

At Clinical Sites:

  • Students must fill out and submit a health screening prior to coming to the clinical site each day.
  • Should a student test positive for COVID-19 or have symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle aches, new loss of taste or smell, or temperature above 100.4° F) they should stay home and notify their instructor.
  • Should a student be exposed to someone who is positive for COVID-19 without wearing proper PPE (N95 respirator, eye protection, gloves, gown), they should stay at home and notify their instructor.
  • Students must follow any requirements of the healthcare facility for entrance into the facility, PPE requirements, and social distancing.
  • After clinical, it is the student’s professional responsibility, as a direct caregiver, to maintain diligent safe hygiene practices to prevent community exposure. Students should not wear their uniforms in public places after clinical and should hand wash thoroughly and make every attempt to bathe or shower before socializing with others in the public.

The student is responsible for compliance with all SON and University COVID-19 policies and procedures. Students are responsible for keeping updated on policy/procedure changes based on CDC recommendations. More information regarding policies and procedures is available on the Oakland University Welcome Back to Campus webpage and the School of Nursing site.

Failure of any student to follow the procedures and policies outlined in this document may result in that person being removed from the classroom, lab, or clinical site and losing credit for time missed and not being allowed to make up time missed. Repeated violations may result in disciplinary action up to and including suspension or dismissal from the SON and/or the University for exhibiting unsafe, unethical, and unprofessional behavior.
