  • Background Checks

    Our current policy states the following:Overview: Students are responsible for costs associated with the criminal background check and

    drug screen. Students must further agree that all results are available to the nursing program and

    the clinical sites associated with the program. The program is responsible for ensuring that

    students comply with individual hospital policy regarding disclosure of results. Should a clinical

    agency refuse to place a student based on the outcome of either the background check or drug

    screen, the program has no responsibility for arranging an alternative clinical placement.

    Criminal Background Check:

    Upon acceptance in the nursing program, students must clear a criminal background check.

    Failure to complete this process will result in dismissal from the program. If the background check

    indicates criminal behavior, the student may be dismissed from the program.
