Community Health Experience
Some degree and certificate programs offered by the college require students to obtain community health service learning experience as part of their course work. Hospitals and health facilities may mandate that a criminal background check and/or drug screening check be conducted prior to placement in a clinical setting and as part of an employer’s screening process. Students not passing these checks may be prohibited from participating in the community health service learning experience thus rendering the student ineligible to satisfactorily meet the course/program requirements, and/or ineligible for hire.
