    • Once you have obtained your Photo ID from MMC, you will need to stop by the School of Nursing offices on the Portland campus in Masterton Hall to pick up the Nursing Student Attachment Badge. Either Emily Holland or Brenda Webster will have badges available for you. Both badges are required for full compliance.
