School Physical Assessment?

I'm required to submit a form to the school I'm getting my ADN to BSN.

Can I get an RN to sign that I'm mentally and physically fit for nursing school. Seems a bit silly to prove I'm physically fit for nursing school as I'm a med-surg nurse for the last 15 years.

No where on it does it say it has to be an MD, so I'm thinking any RN or ARNP can sign it. The assessment is not very throughough, so I'm thinking an RN assessment is good enough.

Do they really check on these things?

You could get a NP to fill it out, but wouldn't that be about as expensive as having a physical? Ask the school who they prefer. I've done insurance "physicals" what a joke.
