Nursing students to be ‘withdrawn’ from Charter College if they don’t take the jab

Hospitals and clinics across the state of Alaska need more health professionals. But at Charter College in Anchorage, where medical workers can get training and certifications, the nursing students are being told that if they don’t take the Covid-19 vaccine, they will not be allowed to attend this fall.

“For clarification, the College’s communication pertaining clinical requirements is not a mandate, it is a new clinical requirement based on communication received from our clinical partners,” the college wrote to one student in a sentence that shifts the responsibility to hospitals that are now requiring of their practitioners.n

“The College does not assume any responsibility for immunization and health requirements that clinical agencies and the state of Alaska require to practice nursing, much like Measles, Tuberculosis, Influenza, and other immunizations that were required to enter the nursing program,” the email said.

All students must provide proof of vaccination by Oct. 8, 2021 prior to attending clinical hours.

The students who abstain from the jab will be withdrawn from the college, the note said. Students who abstain from the vaccine are not eligible for “the Leave of Absence-COVID-19.”

It’s hard to know if the mandate would, er, stick if a student challenged it in court.

This week, a Louisiana judge granted a temporary restraining order against Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine’s requirement that students get vaccinated as a condition for their enrollment.

“Even during a pandemic, we must protect the rights of our citizens,” said Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry. “I’m pleased with the court’s decision and glad these students can focus on what’s important; their education.”

Louisiana Solicitor General Liz Murrill, on behalf of the Attorney General, worked with the plaintiff students and their attorney in achieving the victory.

“This is a win for the people of Louisiana who have sincerely held religious convictions and other reservations about these vaccines,” Murrill said. “The bottom line is that the law and constitution still apply. We are grateful to Judge Doughty for protecting their rights and upholding the rule of law, and we will continue to work toward an acceptable resolution.”

“We’re very happy with the decision,” said Michael DuBos, the attorney representing the VCOM students. “We feel it is important to respect individual rights, especially in a time of crisis. If not, it sets a dangerous precedent.”

  • Tell gov Dunleavy to follow Montana’s lead in Banning employers from requiring vaccinations for employment!!

    • I do not want Government to tell me how to run my business.

      • with the exception of the next lockdown of course

    • The Cowardly Lion of Alaska?

      You’ll have to pry him out from behind his desk first.

    • So you want the government to intervene with a private business decision?

      Would you be of the same mind if the governor mandated vaccines for any enterprise that seeks an Alaskan business license?

      So how it works?

      Ohhhhhhhh I get it, it’s just because you don’t like what is happening…

      • the precedent has been set with lockdowns. you cant put the toothpaste back in the tube. there are always consequences for action taken either positive or negative. its always great seeing people all the sudden become great free marketers when a few months ago the same people where cheering government mandated lockdowns

        also you cant have it both ways the industry is crying about how over worked their people are and that the system is on the verge of collapse while at the same time creating more barriers of entry into the field, doesn’t make sense something is off here

  • And the CCC (Crazy Covidian Cult) marches on!
    .
    “Hypochondriacs of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your sanity (and our freedoms).”

  • Sue them into oblivion

  • No one has to take this ridiculous shot. If ones job suddenly says they require that then quit. Do not offer up your arm for any of them. It’s no one’s business what you do with your body. Hippa means something guys don’t forget that. One thing that really is concerning about all of this? We have lived thru Hong Kong flu, Sars, Norwalk, Swine flu and many more. All were deadly to some not all. Not one time we’re masks donned for the public and people separated. There were vaccines, but only those who thought it was a good idea would get it. This virus? A 99% recovery rate, more people survive it than die, and the government is trying to force folks to accept this faulted vaccine. Give me a break! Tell me again there isn’t more at hand here… It makes zero sense.

    • WHAT IS HIPAA
      The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 is a landmark piece of legislation that was introduced to simplify the administration of healthcare, eliminate wastage, prevent healthcare fraud, and ensure that employees could maintain healthcare coverage when between jobs.

      There have been notable updates to HIPAA to improve privacy protections for patients and health plan members over the years which help to ensure healthcare data is safeguarded and the privacy of patients is protected. Those updates include the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule, HIPAA Omnibus Rule, and the HIPAA Breach Notification Rule.

      What is a HIPAA Violation?
      A HIPAA violation is a failure to comply with any aspect of HIPAA standards and provisions detailed in detailed in 45 CFR Parts 160, 162, and 164.

      There are hundreds of ways that HIPAA Rules can be violated, although the most common HIPAA violations are:

      • Impermissible disclosures of protected health information (PHI)

      • Unauthorized accessing of PHI

      • Improper disposal of PHI

      • Failure to conduct a risk analysis

      • Failure to manage risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of PHI

      • Failure to implement safeguards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of PHI

      • Failure to maintain and monitor PHI access logs

      • Failure to enter into a HIPAA-compliant business associate agreement with vendors prior to giving access to PHI

      • Failure to provide patients with copies of their PHI on request

      • Failure to implement access controls to limit who can view PHI

      • Failure to terminate access rights to PHI when no longer required

      • The disclosure more PHI than is necessary for a particular task to be performed

      • Failure to provide HIPAA training and security awareness training

      • Theft of patient records

      • Unauthorized release of PHI to individuals not authorized to receive the information

      • Sharing of PHI online or via social media without permission

      • Mishandling and mismailing PHI

      • Texting PHI

      • Failure to encrypt PHI or use an alternative, equivalent measure to prevent unauthorized access/disclosure

      • Failure to notify an individual (or the Office for Civil Rights) of a security incident involving PHI within 60 days of the discovery of a breach

      • Failure to document compliance efforts

      HIPAA IS FOR PROTECTED HEALTH INFORMATION (PHI) ONLY.
      So, stop spreading ignorance. HIPAA gives NO ONE in THIS or any PARALLEL UNIVERSE  any right to do anything with your “GOP-P-P–Me-Me-Me–I-I-I” “freedom” — forcing your COVID-19 Delta Variant-infested respiration and personal contact on everyone and everything you come near. You and everyone like you make life a real pip for cancer patients, diabetics, renal patients, transplant recipients and a multitude of other chronically ill individuals, to say nothing of the Anchorage (actually the Alaska) Hospital System, which, as of today’s news, is near imminent collapse, in no small part with the assistance of you and your like-minded Karens and Kens. Thanks to people like you, Satan can take a long, long vacation.

      • Nobody read that, Sophie. You’ve been posting alot lately so you can get that narcissistic dopamine jolt to your diseased brain. I hope you are not becoming a danger to yourself and others. Sophie, in all seriousness and caring, please consider another stay at the psych ward and a medication upgrade.

  • So let me get this strait, a vaccinated person can SPREAD the virus just the same as an unvaccinated person, CATCH the virus just the same as an unvaccinated person, the only “CLAIMED” difference is a vaccinated person is supposed to feel less symptoms of the virus that most had to be tested to know they had it in the first place.
    Meanwhile, over 90% of hospitalizations in the highest vaccinated countries in the world are vaccinated and fully vaccinated people.
    Yeah, nothing nefarious to this jab at all huh?

  • We already have a nurse shortage in the state. Now they’re mandating a biological experimental gene therapy, it’s not even a vaccine. That’s the pretty it up name they slapped on it, like lipstick on a pig. The SARS virus “vaccine” study was stopped after 25 deaths. This CCP Covid vaccine has already killed over 12,000 people. Why are they pushing this??

  • Schools as well as hospitals forcing nursing students and nursing staff to take the jab should worry everyone. Because current medical staff like myself and countless numbers of my peers are done with it! Go ahead run us off. Take an already critical nursing shortage and make it 10 times worse. You are about to have a paralyzing shortage that will take decades to reverse, decades. When these private business run current experienced staff out of the industry and the schools spend their time actively making sure no future students want to be a nurse…it’s you and your loved ones that will suffer when you are at your weakest. If highly educated medical professionals don’t want the vaccine, you should respect that and then ask yourself why in the world do they not want the vaccine? Hmmm.

  • Not to mention those who have already had it and have antibodies. This is a medical school, not an indoctrination camp, or is it?
