Attention Henderson CON Students:
The College of Nursing has been working on contingency plans over the past couple of weeks to allow us to respond to changing conditions in the academic arena due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Out of an abundance of caution and to maintain the safety and welfare of our Roseman family, all students at the Henderson campus will no longer report to their assigned facility for their clinical rotation effective immediately. At this time, do not report to a facility for your clinical. For those of you currently in a facility, please work with your clinical faculty to develop a plan for a departure from your current assignment. Implementation of our alternative clinical experience plan is underway. Dr. Winslow, Ms. Laffee or your clinical faculty will communicate further instructions as soon as possible. Please continue to check your Roseman email frequently for this information. As I indicated in my email sent on Friday March 13, 2020, this action, in and of itself, does not impact the accreditation status of our program nor your progression in the nursing curriculum. Please stay safe and stay healthy!

Like many universities in Nevada, Utah and throughout the nation, Roseman University of Health Sciences has been closely monitoring the changing landscape associated with the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Upholding our commitment to the safety of our students, faculty, staff and their loved ones, and in line with guidance by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local health agencies, Roseman University will temporarily transition to online learning for didactic curriculum, beginning Monday, March 16, 2020.
Students will receive online learning instructions from their academic unit, including plans and protocols for scheduled assessments.
Required lab hours will continue on-campus but modified to limit the number of participating students at one time to maintain social distancing. Instructions and scheduling of lab hours will be communicated to students by their academic unit.
College of Dental Medicine patient clinics remain open. Students will receive specific instructions, protocols and scheduling of clinic hours from the College.
Currently, clinical rotations for the College of Nursing and College Pharmacy are not impacted. Students will be notified if any changes occur by their College Dean or designee.
Roseman University strongly recommends avoiding professional or personal travel (domestically or internationally) to areas highly impacted by COVID-19. This includes to any country with a CDC level 3 or State Department level 4 advisory as this may impact a student’s ability to return to or participate in required clinical rotations due to health clearance rules set forth by clinical sites.
Roseman University campuses will remain open with access to student services. Students with limited or no Internet access are allowed on campus, while maintaining social distancing.
The transition to online learning is temporary. Roseman University Administration will be evaluating the situation on April 17 to determine return-campus-dates to be communicated to all students.
