Coronavirus Guidance for Students in CHHS Degree Programs
We know that students and their families have had to overcome many obstacles associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. We are here to help! We welcome your questions and are here to help all students access high quality learning experiences so you can graduate on time. Stay up-to-date by visiting the ISU latest updates and COVID-19 news. Please see the Dean of Students' website to find out what services are available to support your health. If you have questions about your courses, please review your syllabi, contact your instructor, academic advisor or the Associate Dean for Student Affairs, Dr. Peggy Weber.
The College offers important learning experiences in clinical, fieldwork, and internship sites. Our community partners who provide experiential learning may require students to be vaccinated for COVID-19. Students can prepare for these experiences by communicating regularly with their faculty, receiving training and education in prevention measures, and wearing appropriate protective equipment. Please communicate to your faculty any concerns that you have. If you are not sure who to contact, please call the Dean’s Office 812-237-3683 or email us.
All students must follow ISU policies for preventing transmission of COVID-19. All unvaccinated students must complete the daily Sycamore Symptom Assessment Survey if they plan to be on campus or at clinical, fieldwork, or internship sites on or off campus. Students who become ill must contact Student Affairs to report their illness, cooperate with contact tracing and quarantine or isolate if instructed by a contact tracer to do so. Beginning on January 1, 2022, all students, faculty and staff are expected to upload evidence of their vaccination card, or participate in a weekly COVID-19 test throughout the Spring 2022 semester.
Indiana State University recommends that eligible students get vaccinated for COVID-19 as soon as possible and upload your vaccination record to ISU. Being fully vaccinated is the most important thing you can do avoid interruptions in your education. Being vaccinated is also the best way to prevent transmitting the virus to patients or clients with whom you are working. More information about how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 may be found on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention information website.

Applying personal experiences to the classroom“I use a student-centered teaching approach in the classroom, which simply means that students are encouraged to be part of the discussion,” she said. “I do a lot of hands-on activities and discussions that hopefully help students to grasp the material and apply it.”
Nursing as a calling“I chose Indiana State for a list of reasons, firstly because of its great marks on academics aimed towards the medical field.”
Successful AlumniAn internship opportunity led to a fulltime career as Indy 500 Festival Event Coordinator.
Passionate about patient healthI wanted to advance my nursing career as a nurse practitioner so I could practice at an expert level and provide the best care possible to my patients.
Combining two passions“Beings a professor is the best job in the world – because you get to learn a lot about something you love, research about something you love, and then you get to go out and teach people.”
