Welcome Christ College of Nursing Students
First year BSN students who are accepted at The Christ College of Nursing and Health Sciences (TCCNHS) are required to complete and/or provide the following:
- Criminal Background Check with Fingerprinting
- An appointment with Employee Health – Please call (513) 585-4555
NOTE: The criminal background check must be completed BEFORE New Student Registration Day (NSRD).
RN-BSN students (licensed RN’s) who are accepted at TCCNHS are required to complete and/or provide the following:
- Criminal Background Check
- RN Licensure Verification
- Valid Driver’s License
- Drug Test
- Complete a Physical
- Provide Proof of Immunizations
NOTE: All steps must be completed BEFORE access to online orientation is granted.
This process must be initiated no earlier than 6 months and no later than 90 days prior to the first day of classes.
Students are required to complete this screening process as a condition of enrollment which includes a criminal background check, RN licensure verification, physical, drug test, valid driver’s license, proof of health insurance and required immunizations. Prior background check results that a student may have received for reasons unrelated to the College are not acceptable for purposes of these policies.
NUR 435, 450 and 465 include a clinical practicum component. Clinical agencies, in their sole discretion, have the authority to disallow a student from being placed at their site based on negative information in a background check.
Not being placed, for whatever reason, will result in the student being unable to complete the clinical component of his/her program and, thus, unable to successfully complete his/her course of study at TCCNHS.
New students who are having their conditional acceptance revoked, or current students who are being dismissed due to negative information on a background check, will be notified of such in writing.
Current students have an ongoing duty to report to the College criminal convictions and pending charges that occur while they are enrolled but did not appear on the most recent background check that was performed.
Such crimes or pending charges may result in non-placement and/or dismissal.
The Christ College of Nursing and Health Sciences has secured the services of SELECTiON.COM®, a nationwide provider of background checks and pre-employment verifications based in Cincinnati, to assist in the collection and verification of all pertinent applicant information as outlined above. The collection of this data is conducted by our third-party partner to ensure privacy and accuracy. No data is stored off-shore and multiple security redundancies reduce the risk of an information breach.
