No Documents are to be sent to the VATNP office. All paperwork is to be submitted through the Certified Background website. You must convert your paperwork to electronic files, PDF is the required format and can be achieved by scanning. When preparing your documents for upload, your HIPAA certificates must be combined into a single file for upload, as must the Student Information and Physical Assessment pages.
In the Certified Background instructions, you are asked to provide a classification code depending on the school where you have enrolled. When you enter the Certified Background site, you will see Virginia Highlands as the school. This is OK - please go ahead with registration.
VATNP Student Documents- New and Continuously Enrolled Students
Proof of all the health and professional requirements must be on file prior to participation in any nursing classes. These records are required by our clinical agencies with which the VATNP has binding contracts. Student files will be reviewed each semester for currency of the documents. Failure to provide this documentation by the deadline dates will result in the student being unable to attend clinicals and therefore failing the course.
Deadlines: All paperwork for LPN-RN students must be submitted by May 15th, others must be submitted no later than August 1st into your Certified Profile Clinical Requirements - (please click on link below, Description of required paperwork and accompanying forms), do NOT send documentation to the VATNP office.
