HIPAA and Confidentiality Overview and Presentation

All nursing students are required to complete training on the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) offered by the ETSU HIPAA Compliance Office. To ensure our students receive the most up-to-date information on how to protect the health information of our patients, outside HIPAA training will not be accepted. ETSU HIPAA Training consists of two parts and should take approximately 1hour to complete.


  • Understand the requirements of the HIPAA Rules and University HIPAA Policies and Proceduresz

  • Understand how HIPAA affects the student in their clinical experience

  • Understand the importance of safeguarding protected health information in all forms (e.g. paper, spoken and electronic) and how to do so

  • Understand how to store, use and transmit protected health information in a secure manner

  • Understand who to contact for more information and to report potential or known breaches

How to Access Training:

  • To access the training go to: Login with your
    ETSU email address ( and password.

  • On the left sidebar click “Training Modules.” HIPAA Part One and HIPAA Part Two should
    be listed as “Modules You Need to Take.” Part One and Part Two do not have to be
    completed in one sitting, but both parts (including the quizzes) must be completed by the
    deadline. After you submit the quiz for each module, a certificate of completion will be
    populated. You must print and upload both certificates of completion to the Clinical
    Health Requirement Project Concert site. You must achieve a score of 80% to pass. The
    modules can be repeated as many times as necessary.
