What You Need To Know about student Compliance and Immunization Requirements 

All OHSU School of Nursing students are required to provide documentation regarding the completion of their immunization and compliance records as identified in the Student Compliance and Drug Screening policy 50-01.15 and the OHSU Student Health Service pre-entry guidelines policy 02-01.001. Review the following steps to complete these requirements by the stated deadline.

(All requirements must be completed prior to the start day of your first term)

Step 1 - Start by creating your account in Complio and order the following items right away*:

  • Immunization & Compliance Tracking System
  • Background Check
  • 10-Panel Drug Screen services

*If you are a current student and have already created a compliance account in ITS, you do not need to set up a new account in Complio, please continue using ITS for tracking compliance items.

Step 2 - Required trainings through OHSU’s Compass (module system)

NOTE: New incoming students gain access to their OHSU accounts 30 days prior to their start date as long as they have registered for classes. This is the time when new incoming students will have access to Compass. It is important for students to retain the email that contains account information as that email will expire.

Online trainings at Compass:

Big Brain information: Big Brain no longer exists. All modules that were found in Big Brain are now merged in the Compass module system. This means that students will not have access to complete the 6 required modules below until 30 days prior to the start of first term classes. 30 days prior to the start of classes, all students will receive an email with network ID information. The network ID is required in order to log in to Compass. If a student has completed any modules in Big Brain, those completed modules and completed certificates should transfer into students' Compass account. 

Complete the modules and upload your "certificate of completion" to Complio or the American Databank system. Questions? Contact the Office of Admissions: 503 494-7725
