FAQs - Professional Documentation

A list of the required immunizations can be found online through the UNM Student Health and Counseling (SHAC) website. In addition to these requirements, the College of Nursing requires an annual TB test for its students.

All immunizations must be listed on the UNM Student Health and Counseling’s (SHAC) Immunization Form – no other documentation can be accepted. Previous or outside immunization documentation can be scanned and uploaded to the SHAC Health Portal. Please refer to our instructions on how to upload immunization documentation and how to access your SHAC Immunization Form.

Please provide flu shot documentation to the SHAC Allergy & Immunization Clinic to update your SHAC Immunization Form. Also see, “What do I turn into the CON as proof of immunizations?”

No.  The SHAC does not have access to your private myRecordTracker account.  You must upload the SHAC immunization document to your myRecordTracker account.

Access to UNM’s Learning Central is generally granted after your assigned orientation. While your HIPAA trainings (2 modules) should be automatically loaded into your account, you will need to search for the OSHA training using the keyword “bloodborne” or “infection control” if you are a current UNMH employee.

To start this process, please email a clear copy of your driver’s license, your place of birth (state only; if outside the U.S. please provide country), phone number, and your social security number to HSC-CON-Placements@salud.unm.edu. After we receive this information, a Clinical Affairs staff member will process your fingerprint authorization and provide further instructions.

If you will be completing a residency or clinical rotation in NM at any time during your program, you are required to complete the NMDOH fingerprint clearance. If you will only be completing a residency or clinical in your home state, you will want to complete that state’s fingerprint clearance.
