Background Check & Drug Screening

Background Check & Drug Screening

Started in our Spring 2015 semester all accepted nursing students must have completed a background check and drug screening before the first day of the Academic Semester they are beginning their first Nursing Process Course.

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 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.
