CRIMINAL CONVICTION POLICY
Any student charged with or convicted of a crime before or after admittance to the
Department of Nursing must discuss his/her situation individually and confidentially
with the Chair of the Nursing Department to assess his/her chances of eventual
licensure as a RN and the proper procedure to report his/her situation to the State
In addition, some clinical agencies affiliated with the Department of Nursing may require background checks on nursing students before allowing them to participate in clinical activities. Agency requirements are subject to change without notice. If your background check prohibits participation at certain clinical sites, you may be unable to successfully complete clinical course requirements in the Department of Nursing. Inability to successfully complete clinical course requirements will result in failure of the clinical course and dismissal from the nursing program.
