Note about COVID-19 vaccinations
You are not required (either by law or by The Open University) to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to join the Nursing programme. However, please be aware that, if you choose to remain unvaccinated against COVID-19 (or are medically exempt from such vaccination):
- we would need to carry out a Risk Assessment as part of the process of your admission to the programme.
- not being vaccinated against COVID-19 might decrease some of the placement experiences available to you, due to the potential risk to both you and the patients of your not being vaccinated.
All healthcare students, as future professionals, have a responsibility to protect patients, service users, colleagues, their family, and themselves by getting vaccinated.
