Clinical sites, both on and off campus, require documentation of criminal background checks, drug testing and health and immunization information. Wake Tech requires this information to be on file for each health science student before they begin the clinical portion of their health science program of study.

- Influenza vaccine verification form
- Criminal background check
- Drug testing

Most health sciences programs require students to have health insurance coverage for clinical instruction. Students must provide proof of coverage. Programs not requiring health insurance coverage are Dental Assisting, Dental Hygiene, Health and Fitness Science, Human Services Technology and Therapeutic Massage.
NOTE: Health and immunization requirements for clinical sites are frequently updated and subject to change. For more information, contact Clinical Compliance Administrator Barbara Smith at [email protected] or 919-747-0105.
AHA Basic Life Support Provider Certification
Most health sciences programs require students to obtain and maintain the American Heart Association Basic Life Support Provider certification (also known as BLS for the Healthcare Provider.) The American Heart Association Basic Life Support Provider course is the only course approved by Wake Tech's clinical sites. The Medical Assisting program also requires the American Heart Association Heartsaver First Aid course in addition to the AHA BLS Provider certification.
