I know my nursing school required all the things you're speaking of and my clinical sites required me to have both seasonal and H1N1 shot. Of course my school didn't require the flu shots.....but as I'm not allowed at my clinical site without proof of vaccination or documentation of a medical contraindication....there's no way to pass school without vaccination.
Who knows, maybe she'll opt to not go to nursing school.

Our daughter developed cranial nerve VI palsy after her regular immunizations at 18 months. She had gotten her DTaP, her MMR, and her last HiB series.
There is no way of knowing for certain what will happen when we inject attenuated virii or even killed virii particles into individual human bloodstreams. Especially not so many at one time. Yet the alternatives are just as untenable.
My daughter's palsy is resolving. And we will continue to immunize - but one at a time, not in multiple doses. Our pediatrician understands.
