Compliance Requirements

About the College of Nursing compliance requirements

All undergraduate, master's, PhD and DNP students are required to submit SDSU College of Nursing compliance documents. Documents must be submitted by the stated deadlines for each program. If documents are missing, students will not be allowed to participate in clinical experiences and each absence will be considered unexcused. 

To better serve our students, the SDSU College of Nursing partners with Castlebranch  to manage our students' health compliance documents. The management systems allows students to meet the requirements of the agencies where they fulfill the clinical requirements of their coursework with ease by uploading required documents from their own personal computer or device.

What does this partnership mean for students?

  • Secure upload of immunization records and other compliance documents
  • Electronic access to your documents 24/7 while in the program, and continuing long after graduation
  • Email reminders for those requirements not yet completed or with approaching renewal deadlines
  • Easy and comprehensive way to complete background checks and drug screening

Once admitted to your Nursing program, you will be given a package code and instructions to order your CastleBranch profile through Castlebranch.

Do not send compliance documentation to the College of Nursing. All compliance records must be uploaded into your online CastleBranch profile. Records can also be faxed or sent via mail to your Castlebranch profile.

If you need assistance, please call CastleBranch at 888-666-7788.
