Students entering into the Ron and Kathy Assaf College of Nursing's A.P.R.N. and Entry B.S. in Nursing programs will use the same company who processes our background checks, Castle Branch, to process their Immunization and Physical examinations forms.
In order to complete the background check and upload proof of immunization on www.castlebranch.com, you will be provided a package code and pin number by the admission’s team.
Questions regarding the mandatory Immunization and Physical examinations forms can be directed to Castle Branch at (888) 666-7788.
- All incoming students for the A.P.R.N. and the Entry B.S. in Nursing programs must have a thorough physical examination and submit proof of the required immunization vaccines.

- Once an incoming student goes into the Castle Branch website to fill out his/her background check form, the student will then be directed to create a profile to upload the Immunization and Physical examination forms.
