Students entering a program who either reside out of the state of Illinois, plan to move out of state during their program, or hope to complete their clinical experiences outside of Illinois, should contact the Academic Advisor immediately. There are policies set by the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement and the individual State Boards of Nursing around participating in out of state, online programs as well as participating in clinical outside of the state in which you live. Notifying the Academic Advisor will be the first step in determining what is feasible and what requirements must be met to be cleared. Students will be required to have a clinical site agreement for their proposed clinical experience. ISU will work with students on proposed out of state placements but may not be able to guarantee ability to meet practice requirements from states other than Illinois. It is highly recommended that students consult the applicable licensure boards in their state of residence or in the state where they intend to practice a profession before beginning an academic program or beginning a clinical or practicum experience to identify any requirements that impact the student’s ability to obtain a license, certification or complete a clinical or practicum experience. Please know that there could be additional costs incurred by the student based on that State's requirements.
