Nursing Students - References
Because reference letters for nursing students are required to be confidential and not to be read by students, as a courtesy the Center for Job Placement and College Opportunities (CJPCO) will receive and send reference letters to employers for nursing students.
We strictly comply with FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) regulations. Therefore you must sign a waiver that you will not read the references from instructors and must complete and sign request forms for the CJPCO to send any references to employers.
You are required to present a valid government-issued photo ID, and to sign the waiver form in the presence of a CJPCO staff member. We will make a copy of the photo ID to be kept in your file for audit purposes. All requests for references to be sent must have original signatures on them.
No faxed or scanned signatures can be accepted.
