Student Relocation

Online Nursing Program:
Students who relocate or are planning to relocate to another state or country while enrolled in a Sacred Heart University online program should contact their Clinical Placement Coordinator regarding their clinical or practicum placements. Failure to do so may result in a delay in securing placement in the new state or country and possibly not meeting the necessary requirements within the new state or country for licensing. In addition, this may impact the student’s ability to obtain the clinical hours necessary to meet program requirements. 

All Online Programs:
Students who relocate or are planning to relocate to another state or country while enrolled in a Sacred Heart University online program should contact the Program Director. If a student moves to a state or country where Sacred Heart University is not currently authorized to offer an online option for a specific program it may delay registration or potentially the ability to complete their studies. Students should contact the Program Director to discuss any planned moves. 

Felony

Sacred Heart University’s online programs may require successful completion of practicum hours at an approved clinical site. Criminal background checks, fingerprinting, and/or drug testing prior to clinical placement may be required. A criminal background or felony conviction may affect the student’s ability to secure a site for practicum hours. Failure to complete the required practicum/clinical hours would prohibit program completion. 

In addition, states may restrict or prohibit those with a criminal background from obtaining a professional license and/or eligibility to sit for licensing/certification examinations. 

All students planning to enroll in any of the nursing programs must consent to, submit, and satisfactorily complete a criminal background check upon acceptance into the nursing program. 

Licensure

The licensing board contact information for each state can be found below and is subject to change. 

Important Note for Prospective Students

If you are considering an academic program that leads you to obtaining professional licensure in your state, it is highly recommended that you contact the appropriate licensing agency in your state to seek information and additional guidance before beginning a program outside of your state.

With that in mind, we acknowledge there are limited opportunities in primary care for students residing in the state of Connecticut.

Professional Board Licensure
Academic programs and individual graduates must meet standards set by each states' licensure requirements in order for a graduate to be eligible for a license.

Note for Prospective Students
All students considering an academic program that leads to obtaining professional licensure should contact the appropriate licensing agency within their state to seek information and additional guidance before beginning a program outside of their state.

Wisconsin Board of Nursing
Sacred Heart University has not determined whether the program meets professional licensure requirements in the State of Wisconsin.

Out-of-State
Sacred Heart University College of Nursing is required to meet state higher education requirements and state board of nursing regulations for students who reside outside the state of Connecticut.

New York
Due to requirements of the New York Office of the Professions, Sacred Heart University College of Nursing is restricted from offering clinical placements for APRN licensure programs in the state of New York. Therefore, students from the state of New York or any other state may enroll in the MSN/FNP or FNP/DNP but MAY NOT complete any clinical preceptorships in the state of New York. If students from the state of New York or any other state enroll in these programs, it is with the understanding that all clinical hours MUST be accrued a state other than New York.

However, students from the state of New York or any other state enrolled in non-licensure programs offered by Sacred Heart University College of Nursing (RN-BSN, non-FNP/MSN, and Post Master’s DNP Programs) MAY complete the required clinical preceptorships in agencies within the state of New York as these programs do not lead to advanced practiced licensure.

Clinical Placements
Sacred Heart University College of Nursing understands the complexity of clinical placements and the limited availability of appropriate primary care clinical sites to meet the educational needs of our students. We are committed to providing sites that meet both the learning objectives and the student needs. Also, we understand the personal logistics and planning that are required to complete portions of your clinical education.

With that in mind, we acknowledge there are limited opportunities in primary care for students residing in the state of Connecticut. Students from Connecticut wishing to enroll in the Online MNS/FNP program MUST seek clinical placements outside the states of Connecticut and New York (see New York above). Once a student has identified a placement site and preceptor outside of Connecticut, our Clinical Placement Coordinator will work with the student to secure the placement. Students will be asked to accept the limitations of placement at the time of enrollment.
