Criminal Background Check
In order to comply with Texas Health and Safety Code, 250.006, some clinical agencies require criminal background checks for students prior to clinical rotations. These agencies will deny the student access to the clinical facility if the background check is unsatisfactory for felony and certain misdemeanor convictions. Students that cannot attend a clinical rotation may not be able to complete the course and program requirements necessary for graduation. Therefore, a criminal background check by specified company must be completed prior to beginning the Vocational Nursing Program.
