Following acceptance to the Centra College of Nursing, students will be required to complete forms for the background check. Failure to complete the forms and/or return them by the deadline, refusal for a background check, failure to disclose information or unacceptable report will result in revocation of acceptance. Criminal findings on background checks, including failure to disclose information, may prohibit enrollment into the college.
Drug screens are completed by a vendor selected by the Centra College of Nursing. Any negative results, including refusal to be tested, may prohibit enrollment into the college.
