Hepatitis B vaccine shortage in Ontario

Our office is well aware of the current shortage of Hepatitis B and Twinrix vaccinations since last year. Due to this, it creates a long delay for our new and returning students to complete their Health Form requirements. Please note that you will only have to pay for the Hepatitis B booster shot if your lab blood test result was Non-immunity/Non-reactive/negative. If you cannot find any Hep B/Twinrix vaccines either from your family doctor or Walk in Clinic or pharmacy at this time, please ask your physician/doctor to provide us a medical note regarding this shortage and you are safe to attend clinical/field practice.

Attention new First year (S118) BScN students:

Please do not start any of the medicals, police vulnerable sector check and CPR HCP until we notify you about all of these requirements in the mail sometime in July 2019. Please be patient as Ryerson University will provide us the list of all new confirmed students in July 2019 for the Fall Term 2019. Also, the new first year Practice Requirement Record (PRR) form will not be posted online until August 2019 and any old versions of the form will not be accepted. Should you have any questions, please contact us directly.

Attention: S121 Practical Nursing & C112 PSW Returning Students in Fall 2019

If you are a Returning Semester 2 or 3 or 4 student in the S121 PN or C112 PSW Programs starting in Fall Term 2019, please make sure that your Step 1 TB skin test (renew every year), Police vulnerable sector check (renew every six months) and BLS/CPR level HCP certificate (renew every year) are all valid from September 3, 2019 through April 17, 2020.

Please note that we sent you the Renewal Health Form package in the mail and email reminders about all of this information in March and April 2019. If you currently reside in Toronto region, you must submit to us your Toronto Police form and money order/bank draft payment of $20.00 dollars by May 17, 2019 and we will send it to Toronto Police on your behalf and they will process your police check record within 4 to 6 weeks.

If you have not received the Renewal Health Form package, you may download the Renewal Health Form online at https://www.georgebrown.ca/preplacement/nursing/. If you fail to meet the deadline on July 12, 2019, you will not be able to access your HSPNet account for confirmed placement in August 2019 and you will be excluded from clinical practice starting on September 3, 2019. Should you have any questions, please contact us directly.   

Attention: C112 PSW, C146 BST, C156 BSTI, S118 BScN and S121 PN Returning students

The Police vulnerable sector check is only valid for six months for your program, please make sure that it is valid until the end of your clinical/field placement every semester. It is your responsibility to apply for the renewal before your current police check expires.

If you fail to present us proof of clear police check record on time, you will be excluded from clinical/field placement which may lead to program withdrawal. For more information and deadline, please read and follow the instructions on your specific program Requisite Health Form or visit https://www.georgebrown.ca/preplacement/record_check/
