Clinical Requirements

All students entering a healthcare program with a clinical component are required to complete a criminal background check and drug/alcohol screening upon provisional acceptance to the program.  Students must be free of offenses that could potentially disqualify them from working in a healthcare environment (Florida Statute 400.211).  Admission into clinicals is at the discretion of the clinical agencies. 

Students with a positive background (have been arrested, have criminal charges, other):
We use community health care facilities to meet the clinical component of each nursing course. We have an agreement with those clinical partners that indicates that the applicants must be free of offenses that could potentially disqualify them from working in a healthcare environment.

The clinical facilities require any student with a positive background (arrested in Florida or any other state) to be cleared by the hospitals. The process to be cleared by the hospital is a long process and needs to be initiated prior to submitting a nursing application. The approval for clinical attendance at the different facilities is at the discretion of the clinical agencies.

Students must contact Dr. Lydia Gaud, Associate Degree Nursing Program Manager, via email to initiate the background clearance process. Dr. Gaud will notify the results of the approval process with a signed clinical clearance form. The student will need to submit a completed and signed Clinical Clearance Form with the application packet.

Applications submitted by students without a completed and signed pre-cleared background check form attached will not be processed.
