Congratulations on commencing your course at Western Sydney University!
As a student in a health-related degree we will prepare you to do great things in the workplace via the placement component of your program.
Who requires NSW Health Student Compliance?
Students in certain courses or units must undergo the NSW Health compliance process to be able to participate in a NSW Health placement. Refer to the Handbook entry for your course or unit to see if this requirement applies to you.
What does that mean?
You need to provide documentary evidence of having met the requirements of NSW Health policies that govern student placement in NSW Health facilities. The evidence must be assessed by NSW Health staff, who will determine whether you are compliant or not. You cannot attend a placement in a NSW Health facility unless you are deemed 'Compliant'. Failure to become 'Compliant' could delay your course progression.
Western and our placement partners have a duty of care to ensure your safety, and the safety of the people you will interact with. It is each student’s responsibility to complete all student compliance requirements and provide evidence of compliance as part of the NSW Health verification process prior to attending fieldwork, research or clinical placement in a NSW Health Facility.
