Steps To Be Completed

1.

Guidelines for Processing Interns (updated 6/14/2016)
            Please read the attached for an explanation on processing student interns and your role, as the School Program Director.

Students assigned to the Warren Campus will need to meet these additional requirements:

In addition to meeting the Network requirements, the State of New Jersey has additional requirements which include:

  • NJ Department of Treasury (SDN) 
  • NJ Consolidated Debarment Report 
  • Those students with a significant likelihood of contact with children must also complete New Jersey State Police Criminal History Check. The required form is provided to the student by the Warren Campus hosting manager. To complete the form in the proper format, follow the instructions in the attachment.
2.

Criminal Background Investigation Report

  • If a criminal history is reported on the FBI Fingerprint Report, Child Abuse Clearance or PA State Police Criminal Background Check, please print this form and have the student complete and mail, along with all original criminal history reports, to the St. Luke's University Hospital - Bethlehem Campus Volunteer Services Department.
3.

Immunization History Form  (updated 05/22/2014)

  • This form outlines the St. Luke's health history requirements which are to be kept on file at the school.
  • It is important to note that all students are to have the most current, annual flu shot during flu season. Only religious or medical exemptions will be considered and should be submitted by completing the appropriate form (religious exemption form; medical exemption form) along with the other required documentation and verification form. School program directors will be notified if the exemption is approved. Exemptions not approved will require the student to either have the flu shot or their internship will not be approved.
  • For those with questions regarding new flu requirement, please review this FAQ developed by our Employee Health Department.
4.

Drug Screen Requirements

  • St. Luke's requires a five-panel drug screen (on specific drugs outlined in this attachment) on all student interns as explained in the attachment.
  • If the school does not have a method of providing drug screening, drug screen services are available through St. Luke’s Occumed Resources located at St. Luke’s North. Please contact Donna Corsi at 484-526-3769 for further information or to set up an account.

TB Questionnaire

6.

Hepatitis B Declination Form

  • Having the Hepatitis B series is strongly recommended for students completing an internship at St. Luke’s, but is not required. Should a student decline the vaccine, the attached form should be completed and kept on file with their medical history.
