Allied Health Review

What is an AH Review?
A one-on-one appointment with a nurse practitioner to review your health status before beginning clinical course work at a healthcare facility.


The following healthcare requirements are reviewed:

  • Physical Assessment
  • Immunizations
  • TDAP (tetanus, diphtheria & pertussis)- required one-time adult booster; tetanus (Td) booster every 10 years
  • MMR (measles, mumps & rubella)- 2 doses after 1 year of age, MMR titer is acceptable if immunization records unavailable
  • Varicella (chicken pox) vaccination- 2-doses or titer acceptable
  • Hepatitis B series of 3-doses strongly recommended for healthcare workers, or waiver required
  • Tuberculosis screening
  • 2-step tuberculin skin test (TST) is also known as a 2 step PPD. The screening includes initial placement of the test and reading within 48-72 hours later, then a second test 1-week after the first test is finished, the second test is read within 48-72 hours of placement. The 2-step test needs to be completed within 4 weeks.
  • A blood test may be indicated for some students.

  • Why do I need to have an AH Review through the NMWC?
  • We make it easy for students to complete and document that they have had the necessary health services.
  • We help students understand the health requirements needed to begin clinical course work.
  • Students can receive services through the NMWC or their healthcare provider. The NMWC can provide the services conveniently and at a low cost. Eligible students may use their financial aid to cover cost of services provided by the NMWC.
  • Primary care providers can send records directly to the clinic to be added to the student’s secured electronic health record.
  • Student health records are managed by the NMWC, and compliances reported to the program and clinical agencies.
