Returning DNP-NE, DNP-CE, and BSN to DNP Students

Students enrolled in clinical, practicum, or health assessment classes are required to be compliant for the influenza vaccine by November 1.  Be sure to complete this requirement before the deadline.  Flu documentation must be uploaded to MyBuckMD.  Plan ahead since it will take Wilce several weeks to process the flu documentation.

Health professional student vaccine/titer/TB testing:

If you have questions, please contact Wilce at the number listed above or email shs@osu.edu.

For questions or concerns please contact CONcompliance@osu.edu.

For specific questions regarding health documentation such as immunizations or titers, or documentation related to any of the immunization requirements please email the Wilce Student Health Center at preventivemedicine@osu.edu.
