How is Hurley handling Coronavirus-19 for its students?
Students may be asked to monitor temperature, symptoms
Many health student rotations have been suspended at Hurley Medical Center for the near future due to pandemic-related issues. We look forward to hosting all students again after the COVID-19 risk is minimal, patient volume has stabilized, and personal protective equipment (PPE) is widely available.
When your rotation does begin at Hurley, you may be asked to report your temperature and/or symptoms daily and to submit 14 days of written logs if either of two conditions are met:
- You travel from a location outside of Michigan
- You have an exposure to a known COVID-19 case, and you were not wearing PPE
At present, Hurley requires universal masking for anyone entering the building, which means you will need to wear a basic procedure mask when you are on the premises, except in instances when you are in your own private office or when you are eating. (When you are eating, please keep 6 feet between you and any others - and be sure to wipe down your eating area and chair, etc., before and after your meal.)
During the coronavirus pandemic - and in other instances of potential or actual infectious disease outbreaks, Academic Affairs at Hurley Medical Center follows the hospital's infection control policies and guidelines, which are based on the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and may change as the situation develops.

This coronavirus is new and has caused an outbreak of respiratory illness, first identified in Wuhan, China, in fall 2019. The illness caused by the virus is called COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019). [Image is free to use, per the CDC.]

Just because we no longer operate our own nursing school doesn't mean that we don't still love training nursing students. We work with area nursing schools to provide top-notch training and rich educational rotations to students.
