Certifications & Immunization/Health Requirements

Our accrediting agencies and clinical facilities require evidence that all faculty files are complete and compliant, including the health and immunizations record. 

Submitting certificates and health/immunization documentations

The following documents are required to be submitted prior to starting your teaching assignment to Karin Kasper, Administrative Assistant, kkasper@samuelmerritt.edu:

  • Copy of current RN license
  • Copy of current BLS/CPR card
  • Hepatitis B positive titre or 3 vaccines
  • Tdap or Tetanus booster - within last 10 years
  • Positive titre of Mumps, Rubeola, and Rubella or 2 MMR vaccines
  • PPD or Quantiferon (if positive, x-ray and annual survey also required) - annually
  • Varicella positive titre or 2 vaccines

Health forms must be valid throughout the duration of the course. Faculty should retain a copy of these documents as they need to be presented again during the pre-employment physical.

Accessing Faculty Employment Tracking System (FETS)

Faculty members should review their record in FETS http://webapps.samuelmerritt.edu/fets (login name and password are the same as the SMU webmail) on a regular basis to ensure that it is up-to-date and that documents are valid while teaching at SMU. The tabs that need to be reviewed are under the Degrees/Certifications and Vaccinations tabs. Provide any necessary documentation to Karin Kasper, Administrative Assistant, prior to starting the teaching assignment so the record can be updated.
