The following dates represent the application deadlines for Seminole State's nursing associate degree programs. Prospective students must submit their completed nursing application and meet all Seminole State general admission requirements by the posted deadline to be considered for admission.
Due to the COVID-19 restrictions currently in place, we are delaying admissions to the Seminole State Nursing program. Students interested in applying to the program may do so during the August 2020 application period for a January 2021 start date. The May 2020 nursing application period has been cancelled.
- Please read the Letter from our Dean regarding the Nursing program admissions delay due to the COVID-19 restrictions.

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.
Students with a positive background must contact Dr. Lydia Gaud, Associate Degree Nursing Program Manager, via email firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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.
