  1. Submit verification of physical and emotional health on the Student Medical Form.
  2. Submit documentation of required immunizations.
  3. Complete criminal background checks and drug testing. Applicants should be aware that if a clinical site denies a student placement in their facility, the student will be unable to complete the required clinical component of the course. The student will be withdrawn from all NUR courses and will not be allowed to progress in the nursing program.
  4. Submit proof of current American Heart Association BLS Provider CPR certification

Note: An applicant to a nursing program should be aware that a person who has been convicted of or pled guilty to a felony or misdemeanor (other than a minor traffic violation) may not be eligible for licensure by the NC Board of Nursing. The North Carolina Board of Nursing requires Criminal History Record Checks of all persons applying to practice nursing in North Carolina. Applicants will be charged a fee to offset the cost of this background check.
