The COVID-19 pandemic impacts everyone. Do your part to foster a healthy and safe campus environment for all by following these important guidelines.
The purpose of the information below is to provide resources and tools to help School of Nursing students, faculty and staff stay informed about the evolving COVID-19 situation and to provide SON-specific information.
Nursing students are not attending clinical in designated COVID-19 areas, or in other situations where they would come in contact with known COVID-positive patients. While the majority of clinical sites will be providing essential PPE to students, the SON will supply PPE to students when their specific clinical site requests they provide it. (Note: Students outside of WNY are expected to adhere to their local guidelines for clinical rotations.)
Students required to attend on-campus labs will be separated into groups of no more than eight students. Instructional spaces have been measured out and capacities were recalculated based on a six-foot minimum space on either side of, as well as in front and back of each student.
Please contact your course instructors for any questions related to your coursework.
Registration for summer sessions is now open. SON faculty are working on a plan to transition some graduate coursework to a synchronous online format.
We will still honor all Early Assurance decisions and will work with each student to manage their School of Nursing status.
At this time, all information sessions will be moved online. Please check our events calendar for updates.
