New Oak Point BSN Student Guide: Secured Printing

You will hear that the first two terms are the hardest. That's why this guide has been created to help you ease into nursing school and become the best student possible!

Secure Printing in the Library

Why does Oak Point have secured printing?

1.       It reduces massive paper waste that occured in the library in previous terms, saving trees, money, and toner! (thus minimizing tuition waste!)

2.       If you send a job to the printer when a bunch of people are printing out notes and you don’t have time to wait for your job, come back to the library (within 48 hours) and retrieve your job on your own time!

3.       Never worry about your print job “disappearing”! There is no need to print things out more than once!


The Secure Print system allows you to secure a print job in the properties/preference tab by designating a 4 digit print code before sending it to the printer.  Once you are at any printer/copier/scanner, on the network, you can enter the 4 digit code and release the print job.  We recommend using your birthday!
