Other Program Costs

  • Immunizations, TB Screening & Titers
    All Scholars will need to have current immunizations and recent TB screenings during the clearance process. You may also be asked to get titers, which are blood tests that check for immunity to certain diseases. Requirements vary by site and will be discussed further during interviews. Immunizations are generally covered by health insurance or may be obtained from a school health center or low-cost community clinics. You may need to obtain the titers at your own expense.
  • CPR Certification
    Nurse Scholars are required to carry current CPR certification at the level of Basic Life Support (BLS) for Health Care Providers through the American Heart Association. CPR certification is not included in tuition. COPE Health Scholars partners with several local CPR trainers to provide applicants exclusive discounts.
  • COPE Connect Membership
    COPE Connect, the COPE Health Scholars alumni network, establishes lifelong engagement with our alumni through an online and in-person community of health care professionals and pre-professionals joined by a commitment to professional development and a culture of lifelong learning.  

    COPE Connect is a valuable resource for the wide range of COPE Health Scholar alumni looking to connect, continue the journey of lifelong learning, access new career opportunities and grow professionally. Your program fee includes a one-year membership to COPE Connect.
