Background Check & Drug Screening

Background Check & Drug Screening

Deadline for Fall 2015 New Nursing Students to have this completed is August 15, 2015


Started in our Spring 2015 semester all accepted nursing students will have to undergo a background check and drug screening before beginning Nursing Process Clinical Courses. The screening must be completed after achieving a qualifying score on the NLN-PAX RN exam. Background checks should be initiated after the student has received confirmation of acceptance into the program and prior to the deadline date established by the Program (August 15th for students beginning clinical in the Fall semester / December 15th for the Spring Semester).

The cost of the background check and drug screening is the student's responsibility. Information on how to complete the process can be found below. The background check and drug screening are conducted by an external vendor and the report is sent to the Records and Registration Office. If a reference should occur on a student's report, the student will be contacted by the Nursing Department Chair. Please note that the Nursing Department will evaluate the information and, in their sole discretion, make the final determination as to the student’s ability to start a Nursing Process Clinical Course.
