Health Insurance

Bon Secours Memorial College of Nursing does not provide health services to students on campus. The College recommends, but does not require, that students carry private health insurance throughout enrollment in the program to cover needed health services that are beyond first aid. Students who do not choose to carry health insurance are solely responsible for all costs incurred related to his/her health while a student at the College of Nursing.

Students who need medical attention may contact one of the following local departments of health:

Professional Liability Insurance

Students are encouraged to carry professional liability insurance in order to go into clinical areas. The student pays an annual premium for the amount of coverage, which can be purchased through the National Student Nurses' Association. 


While the College does not recommend any specific program, there are several online resources for housing in the Richmond area.
