Non-Discrimination Statement
The Christ Hospital School of Nursing does not discriminate based on race, color, age, religion, Handicap, National or ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation, or veteran status in the administration of its admissions, educational policies, scholarship and loan programs, or any other policies. However, there are also essential eligibility requirements for professional nursing student’s participation in clinical practice.

The Cooperative Nursing Program applicant and/or student would be considered ineligible to participate in the nursing program when his/her physical, emotional, and /or intellectual disability and/or incapacitated state:

  1. Hinders the student from being able to achieve the cognitive knowledge and/or psychomotor skills required for the cooperative nursing program student and expected of the registered nurse in the performance of the functions for which he/she is preparing to be employed.
  2. Creates a potential health hazard to self or others.

It is assumed that a student will independently be able to:

  1. Functionally use the senses of vision, hearing, smell, and touch with or without technical (mechanical) compensation.
  2. Observe a patient accurately at a distance and close at hand. Observation necessitates the functional use of the senses of vision and somatic sensation. It is enhanced by the functional use of the sense of smell.
  3. Execute functional psychomotor activities to provide general nursing care and emergency treatment. Such actions require coordination of both gross and fine muscular movements, equilibrium and functional use of the senses of touch and vision.
  4. Hear, observe, and speak to patients.
  5. A student must be able to communicate with patients and others effectively and with sensitivity.
  6. Communication includes not only speech but also reading and writing.
  7. Must be able to function independently without the assistance of another person in clinical.
  8. The student must be able to promptly complete all responsibilities attendant to the care of the patients, families, and groups from a variety of social, emotional, cultural, and intellectual backgrounds and develop mature, sensitive and effective relationships with them.

Any student who because of a disabling condition may require some special arrangements in order to meet the essential eligibility requirements and meet course requirements should contact the Director of the School of Nursing as soon as possible to make necessary accommodations. Students should be prepared to present a disability verification form from their physician and update information periodically. The student will then be referred to the office of disability at Hudson County Community College.
