Healthcare Program Student Disclosure Statement

Students who are pursuing degrees or certificates leading to application for professional licensure or certification, and/or who will be participating in clinical placements, internships, or practical through their program, should be aware that their host facility may require a criminal background check, finger printing, or drug screening. In such situations, each student is responsible for obtaining and paying for the background check or other screening process and for delivering required documentation to the facility. Although the College will make reasonable efforts to place admitted students in field experiences and internships, it will be up to the host facility to determine whether a student will be allowed to work at that facility. Host facilities may consider expunged convictions in placement decisions. Students shall further be aware that a criminal record may jeopardize licensure by the State certification body. Students should consult the licensing or certification body corresponding to their intended occupation for more details. Successful completion of a program of study at the College does not guarantee licensure, certification, or employment in the relevant occupation. Standards may change during a student’s program of study.

Criminal Background Check

ALLIED HEALTH AND NURSING STUDENTS

IMPORTANT NOTICE

The health program’s curricular criteria and academic standards for courses and program achievement require students to complete clinical assignments and training at clinical sites. In accordance with our clinical affiliations, all students present at a hospital/clinical affiliation site must complete criminal background check. A criminal record may make you ineligible to participate in a clinical assignment. The resulting reports will be disclosed to field placement agencies, hospitals, and clinicals. Clinical affiliations may also require that students pass a drug screening before accepting them. Any and all cost associated with the aforementioned screenings will be borne by the Student. Further, all fees paid for criminal record checks are non-refundable.

Failure to comply with procedures will result in termination of program sequencing and dismissal from the nursing and allied health program or certificate.
