Updated May 5, 2022
Clinical employees and students who are either unvaccinated or who have declined to disclose vaccination status must participate in weekly COVID-19 testing, in accordance with Oregon’s temporary rule which became permanent effective January 31, 2022.
Weekly testing is not required for non-clinical NUNM community members.

NUNM COVID-19 Testing FAQ
NUNM’s COVID Operations Team has determined a structure for weekly testing for:
- Clinical individuals who have been granted a religious or medical exemption
- Non-clinical individuals who have opted for weekly testing instead of vaccination
Please read the NUNM COVID-19 Testing FAQ below for more information.
NUNM requires all students enrolled in a clinical program and all employees who engage in direct or indirect patient care to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 with an acceptable vaccine or submit to weekly COVID-19 testing in accordance with OAR 333-019-1010.
Requirements for NUNM staff and students engaged in clinical activity are different from those in non-clinical activities. Please see details below.
All clinical students and employees must comply with the Oregon Healthcare Vaccine Mandate, which requires vaccination or approved medical or religious exemption. (Please see the Vaccination Exemption FAQ for more information.) Any individual who receives an approved exemption will be required to comply with the weekly testing requirements.
Weekly testing is not required for non-clinical students and employees.
Online Students AND faculty
Online students and faculty are exempt from the vaccination and testing requirements — unless you will participate in precepting or internship opportunities (either on or off campus) or you plan to use on-campus resources such as the NUNM Library.
Any online students who will participate in clinical activities or who will be on campus for any reason are required to meet the same vaccination or testing requirements as in-person students.
Currently, there is no exemption for individuals who have previously been infected with COVID-19. Experts do not yet know how long a person is protected from getting sick again after recovering from COVID-19 and recommend getting vaccinated regardless of whether you already had COVID-19.
Per state mandate, unvaccinated individuals who do not meet exemption and weekly testing requirements will be unable to participate in clinical activities at NUNM.
