Welcome to your student resources hub! If you need to quickly find a link, office, or announcement, you’re in the right place.

In order to be in compliance with state and College health and safety standards, students must meet a set of requirements.

Once registered for any class at the College - on-campus or online - all students must submit the documentation outlined below under Immunizations according to the student's department or program policy. Please refer to your program handbook for additional details. 


  • MMR vaccine (Measles, Mumps, Rubella): 2 doses minimum of 28 days apart, OR positive titers for Measles, Mumps, and Rubella
  • Varicella vaccine (Chicken Pox): 2 doses minimum of 4 weeks apart, OR a positive titer. A history of Chicken Pox is not accepted.
  • Hepatitis B vaccine: Completion of 2 or 3 dose series OR a Hepatitis titer with positive result for surface antibody [anti-HBs]
  • Tdap vaccine (Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis): within the last 10-years, then every 10 years
  • The COVID-19 vaccine is required for students who are on-campus or at a clinical site):
    • Pfizer and Moderna vaccines: 2 doses required
    • Johnson & Johnson vaccine: 1 dose required
Please note: most clinical sites also require the Bivalent booster in addition to the vaccination, provided a student is within the timeline to receive the booster. 

For non-clinical enrollment, the College allows students to request a declination waiver for medical or religious reasons. These will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. 

If you have questions, contact the Health and Safety Records at healthandsafetyrecords@laboure.edu or (617) 322-2579.

All students registered for a clinical course are required to submit to CastleBranch evidence of compliance with the immunization requirements specified by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health in accordance with the Center for Disease Control. 

The College will send students an email invitation to CastleBranch once they are registered for classes; CastleBranch will also send a direct email invitation. 

Students entering a clinical course (e.g., NUR1015) must submit the following health documentation by August 1 (Fall); December 1 (Spring); April 1 (Summer I/II):

  • Influenza vaccine (flu shot): yearly, and as soon as the vaccine becomes available  during the annual flu season (early Fall through early Spring). The College will announce a deadline.
    • There may be additional flu shot deadlines per clinical site affiliation agreements. 
    • Students may decline the flue shot annually, in writing. Some affiliate sites may not admit a student who has not received a flu shot, while others may require personal protective equipment (e.g. mask) to be work, or other measures to be taken.
  • PPD (Tuberculosis Skin Test): negative test within the past year, every year.

Background check

All students registered for a clinical course, or a course with a professional practice experience involving the care of minors, will need to submit to a CORI, or Criminal Offender Record Information and a SORI, or Sex Offender Record Information background check prior to the start of the course. 

Click here for the Criminal Offender Record Information Authorization Form

This requires an in-person check of a government issued ID. It may not be done via email or mailing. Present the authorization forms with a government issued photo ID (example: driver’s license, passport). The College will submit this background check without charge. Please submit directly and in-person to the Student Success Center.

Out of state Neurodiagnostic Technology Students must use the Neurodiagnostic Technology (NDT) Student Criminal Offender Record Information Authorization Form and shall utilize a Notary Public to perform the in-person check of a government issued photo ID.

You will receive information about these background checks at your program-specific orientations, or via email from your program or the Office of Health and Safety Records. 

Health insurance

Massachusetts law requires that all students enrolled in nine or more credits each semester must have health insurance. Students meeting this criteria will automatically be enrolled and a charge will be assessed to their account. Opportunities to waive or enroll in insurance coverage will generally occur in the month prior to term beginning. Students need only waive once per academic year. Visit our Student Health Insurance page for more information and visit the Health and Safety Compliance section at my.laboure.edu for detailed coverage information.


Students must maintain CPR certification while enrolled at Labouré College of Healthcare. The only acceptable certification is American Heart Association Healthcare "BLS Provider".
